Mattias Janmark is headed back to Dallas.
The 26-year-old forward, who was slated to become a restricted free agent come July 1, has signed a one-year, $2.3-million contract extension with the Stars, the team announced Thursday.
“Mattias is a relentless forward who combines his tremendous skating ability with sound positioning, making him a disruptive force,” said general manager Jim Nill in a press release.
“He is a versatile player that can play up and down the lineup at even strength, and was one of the key members of our penalty killing group, which was a top-five unit all season.”
Janmark collected 25 points in 81 games with the Stars in 2018-19. He added another three points in seven playoff contests for Dallas.
The third-round pick in the 2013 draft registered 88 points across three seasons with the Stars.
