Dallas Stars News


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 led the Stars onto the ice for Game 5.

Bishop made 34 saves on 35 shots in the Stars 5-1 win over the Predators in Game 4. It was another strong performance from Bishop, who has allowed just eight goals on 137 shots (.942 SV%) through four games. The Stars have shown more than capable of having with the higher seeded Predators and Bishop has been a difference maker for Dallas so far.

Bishop will start Game 3 vs. the Predators.

Bishop stopped 40 of 42 shots in the Stars 2-1 overtime loss in Nashville in Game 2. Bishop was outstanding for the second straight game and has now stopped 70 of the first 74 shots (.946 SV%) that he has faced in the series. Goals have been equally hard to come by at the other end of the rink, so Bishop will have to play great again in Game 3 if the Stars are going to take a 2-1 series lead.
