The Stars signed Tanner Kero to a two-year, two-way contract.
The Stars signed Gavin Bayreuther to a one-year, two-way contract.
The Stars signed Reece Scarlett to a one-year, two-way contract.
The Stars have re-signed Jason Dickinson to a two-year deal worth $3.0 million ($1.5M AAV).
The Stars have re-signed Dillon Heatherington to a one-year, two-way contract.
The Stars have signed Andrej Sekera to a one-year deal worth $1.5M.
The Stars have signed Joe Pavelski to a three-year, $21.0M contract ($7.0M AAV).
The Stars have signed Corey Perry to a one-year, $1.5M deal.
The Oilers have placed Andrej Sekera on unconditional waivers for the purpose of a buyout.
Sekera had two years left on a six-year deal that carried a $5.5M cap-hit but the buyout will have a $2.5M cap-hit for the next two seasons—giving them $3.0M in additional cap-space heading into free agency.
The Stars have re-signed Taylor Fedun to a two-year, two-way contract.
Fedun had four goals and seven assists (11 points) in 54 games with Dallas last year and also appeared in seven games on their playoff run. The 31-year-old defenseman will likely remain as the Stars’ No.6/7th blueline option in 2020.
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 Joel Kiviranta to a two-year, entry-level contract.
Kiviranta, 23, was an undrafted free agent from Finland, who had 16 goals and 15 assists (31 points) in 48 games with Sport Vaasa of the Finnish Elite League.
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.
Hintz played Game 7 with a broken foot.
Hintz missed the morning skate before Game 7 because of a foot injury he suffered while blocking a shot late in Game 6. The Stars announced that he played through a broken foot in Game 7 but is expected to be ready for training camp for the 2019-20 season.
Hintz (foot) will play in Game 7.
Hintz missed the morning skate but head coach Jim Montgomery said that Hintz will be available for Game 7 in St. Louis. Hintz will centre the second line with Jamie Benn and Alexander Radulov on his wings and comes in with three goals and two assists in six games in the series.

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 allowed four goals on 20 shots before leaving the 4-1 loss with under two minutes left in the second period. 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.
