Ex-pee wee hockey player Travis Kelce is spotted at Stars-Oilers NHL playoff game in Dallas as Chiefs star continues enjoys offseason between Taylor Swift tour dates and offseason training

Travis Kelce made a surprise appearance at Saturday’s NHL playoff game in Dallas, where the Kansas City Chiefs star was seen chatting in a private suite as the hometown Stars squared off with the visiting Edmonton Oilers in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.

Both Travis and his brother Jason are known to attend NBA games in their native Cleveland and the younger Kelce claims he declined a scholarship offer out of high school to play hoops for coach Bob Huggins at West Virginia.

But before Kelce became a high school football, basketball and baseball star, Taylor Swift’s boyfriend was actually a pee wee hockey player in Cleveland Heights.

‘I really love Hockey,’ read an old tweet that resurfaced following Kelce’s appearance at the Stars-Oilers game. ‘I haven’t stepped on the nice since I quit after playing 8 years… But that’s got to change! I miss it too much.’

Kelce wasn’t the only well-known athlete in the crowd on Saturday in Dallas. Former Mavericks star and NBA champion Dirk Nowitzki was also seen at American Airlines Arena, where a statue of the German basketball legend can now be found.

Kelce will be racking up the airmiles this summer as he is set to jet back and forth across the Atlantic to support Swift. 

The Kansas City Chiefs star has the played the role of doting boyfriend, supporting the pop superstar on her Eras Tour, ever since striking up a romance almost a year ago. 

Most recently, the 34-year-old has watched the 14-time Grammy Award winner as she took her sold-out show to Europe. 

However, with the start of the NFL season looming, the three-time Super Bowl winner will have to manage a juggling act. 

The tight end will reportedly nip back and forth between Europe and the US while Swift continues her tour, which continues Friday in Lisbon, Portugal.

Facing a 1-0 series deficit after dropping Game 1 in double overtime, the Stars got on the board at the 3:39 mark in the first period when Jamie Benn scored on assists from Wyatt Johnston and Miro Heiskanen.

Edmonton’s Connor Brown scored the equalizer a minute later on assists from Cody Ceci and Warren Foegele.

But that tie was ultimately broken 3:41 into the third, when Mason Marchment beat Edmonton keeper Stuart Skinner following a string of missed opportunities for Dallas.

Dallas front-line center Roope Hintz and Oilers forward Adam Henrique both missed another game in these NHL playoffs after being scratched in Game 2.

Both players had been described by their coaches as game-time decisions.

Henrique missed his seventh game in a row, and eighth of nine, since injuring am ankle in the first-round finale against Los Angeles on May 1.

Hintz was out for the fourth game in a row because of an upper-body injury. He hasn’t played since leaving in the first period of Game 4 of the Stars’ second-round series against Colorado on May 13.
