Former hockey player Travis Kelce was spotted at the Stars-Oilers NHL playoff game in Dallas, where the Chiefs star continues to enjoy a break between Taylor Swift tour dates and offseason workouts

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 while the home Stars took on 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 hometown of Cleveland, and the younger Kelce says he turned down a scholarship offer from 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 pissed-off hockey player in Cleveland Heights.

«I really love hockey,» read an old tweet that resurfaced after Kelce’s performance at the Stars-Oilers game. “I haven’t stepped on anything since I quit after 8 years of playing… But that has to change! I miss her too much.”

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

Kelce will be racking up the air miles this summer as he prepares to fly back and forth across the Atlantic to support Swift.

The Kansas City Chiefs star has been playing the role of doting boyfriend and supporting the pop superstar on her Eras Tour since they started dating nearly a year ago.

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

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

Both players were described as mid-match decisions by their coaches.

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

Hintz was out for the fourth straight game with an upper-body injury. He has not played since leaving in the first period of Game 4 of the Stars’ second-round series against Colorado on May 13.
