The New England Stars were a North Eastern Hockey League (NEHL) team based in Danbury, Connecticut who started play at the end of 2006. The team filled the void when the Danbury Trashers left the Danbury Ice Arena, after the Trashers folded due to involvement in illegal business (see Danbury Trasher Controversy). The Stars were by far the most successful team in the 2006-07 season, going undefeated as of March 18, 2007. Their superiority against the rest of the league was tested on March 18 when they played against an all-star team made up of the best players on the other three NEHL teams. However, they lost the game 4-3. They finished the regular season 20-0.
