The president and CEO of the Dallas Stars has apologized to the Vegas Golden Knights and the NHL for the behavior of some fans at Tuesday's game.

"Their actions were unacceptable and put the safety of the players and fans at risk," Brad Alberts said in a statement Wednesday.

"We take pride in providing the best experience for everyone who enters our arena. The actions of these individuals certainly do not reflect our great city, organization and loyal fan base."

Several fans at American Airlines Center in Dallas threw food and trash onto the rink during the game, which ended in a 4-0 Vegas win.

Video captured at least one person throwing a bag of popcorn that hit Golden Knights goalkeeper Adin Hill as he re-entered the ice.

The game itself also got heated at times. Dallas had eight total penalties, including a five-minute major on Stars captain Jamie Benn for cross-checking Mark Stone in the first period.

Benn was ejected after being assessed a game misconduct, and NHL Player Safety announced that he will get a hearing Wednesday for the penalty.
