Dallas Stars News

The Ducks have bought out the contract of Corey Perry.

Perry had two years left on his eight-year, $69.0M ($8.625M AAV) deal that he signed in March of 2013. Perry was a great scorer for Anaheim after being picked No.28 overall in 2003 but his production has dropped off in the last two seasons. The 34-year-old had just 23 goals and 36 assists (59 points) in 102 games over the last two seasons. The buyout will cost the Ducks $2.625M against the Salary Cap in 2019-20.

The Stars have signed Mattias Janmark to a one-year contract extension worth $2.3 million.

Janmark, 26, took a step back in 2018-19, scoring just six goals with 19 assists (25 points) in 81 games. Janmark is a key penalty killer for the Stars, ranking third among forwards in shorthanded time on ice per game (1:30). During Dallas’ playoff run, Janmark had one goal and two assists (three points) while appearing in seven of their 13 playoff games.

The Stars have signed Roman Polak to a one-year deal worth $1.75 million.

Polak had nine points (1G / 8A) in 77 games this season. Polak led the Stars in penalty minutes (69) and blocked shots (152)—which was good for 17th in the NHL. Polak became a reliable partner for rookie Miro Heiskanen, playing 43.3 percent of his 5v5 ice-time with Heisknanen.

The Stars have signed Esa Lindell to a six-year extension worth $34.8 million ($5.8M AAV).

Lindell, 24, has become a fantastic shutdown defenseman for Dallas after being selected in the third-round in 2012. Lindell has some offensive flair to his game as well, scoring 11 goals and 21 assists (32 points) in 82 games during the regular season. The Finnish defenseman had a great postseason, leading all Stars’ players in ice-time (26:58 TOI/gm) with four points (1G / 3A) and 34 blocked shots in 13 games. Lindell, John Klingberg and Miro Heiskanen will be among the NHL’s best top-3 defensemen for the Stars for many years to come.

Bishop will start Game 7 in St. Louis on Tuesday.

Bishop was forced to leave Game 6 after being hit near the collarbone by a Colton Parayko slap-shot.

Bishop is ready to start Game 7 in St. Louis—he has gone 4-1-1 while allowing a combined 17 goals on 190 shots (.911 SV%) in six road games in the playoffs.

Pavelski (upper-body) skated on Monday but will not play in Game 6.

Pavelski, who has been out since Game 7 vs. the Golden Knights, joined his teammates for Monday’s gameday skate but will not be in the lineup for Game 6. Pavelski appears close to returning to the Sharks lineup and will almost certainly be back for Round 3 if the Sharks are able to advance tonight.
