DALLAS (CBS SPORTS) — Outdoor hockey games have been spreading across the NHL like wildfire recently and now the possibilities exist in every NHL market since the league is going to host a game in Los Angeles of all places.

The means cities like Dallas could get involved in the fun. In fact, you can bank on that according to Stars color man Daryl Reaugh.

“Mark my words today,” Reaugh told the Dallas Morning News. “There will be a game at Cowboys Stadium. There will be a game there. I would say in the next three years there will be a game at Cowboys Stadium.

“Five years ago, the technology on how they make ice wouldn’t have been good enough to have a game at Dodger Stadium in the middle of a hockey season. But they trust their ability to create a surface. It’s not so much about temperature any more. It’s just about wet weather.”

Well, sure, at this point why not?

Though Cowboys Stadium wouldn’t be a true outdoor game like the one in LA given the fact that the mammoth building in Texas has a mostly covered roof, it would still be a spectacle. If nothing else, you’d be playing a game with some outdoor elements in front of updwards of 100,000 fans in Texas.

Perhaps even crazier is that the HD video board that hangs over the football field would dwarf the ice rink below.
