The Dallas Stars have signed forward Jiri Hudler to a one-year, $2-million contract, the club announced Wednesday.
Hudler scored 16 goals and totalled 46 points in 72 games with the Calgary Flames and Florida Panthers in 2015-16. The Panthers acquired the 32-year-old winger ahead of the 2016 trade deadline.
“Jiri brings a combination of detail, discipline and skill,” Stars GM Jim Nill said. “He has a championship pedigree and adding him to our group of forwards solidifies our depth up front, giving our coaching staff a number of options and versatility.”
The Detroit Red Wings originally selected Hudler in the second round (58th overall) at the 2002 NHL Draft.
Hudler has scored 161 goals and registered 417 points in 676 career games with the Red Wings, Flames, and Panthers.
