CHARLOTTETOWN - There's a report the City of Charlottetown and the Dallas Stars are close to signing a deal that would bring a portion of the NHL club's training camp to Prince Edward Island this fall.

The Charlottetown Guardian cites a report in the Dallas Morning News that says the Stars are "pondering having part of training camp" on Prince Edward Island.

Wayne Long, Charlottetown's events development officer, declined comment when asked about the story.

P.E.I. natives Brad Richards and Steve Ott play for the Stars.

The city submitted a proposal to the Stars organization earlier this year.

Charlottetown Mayor Clifford Lee and Long travelled to Dallas last year for a five-day meeting with the organization.
