The Dallas Stars continued to bolster their forward depth on Monday by signing free agent winger Corey Perry to a one-year deal worth $1.5 million, the club announced Monday.

Dallas opened free agency by adding a pair of veteran snipers, with both Perry and Joe Pavelski coming aboard for 2019-20.

The 34-year-old Perry was bought out from his contract with the Anaheim Ducks on June 19 after finishing with just 10 points in 31 games in 2018-19. He had two years left on an eight-year deal signed with the Ducks in 2013. The Peterborough, Ont., native spent 14 years in Anaheim, amassing 776 total points over 998 games.

A former Hart Trophy and Rocket Richard Trophy winner, Perry is one of 29 Canadians in the Triple Goal Club, having won a Stanley Cup with the Ducks in 2007, Olympic gold medals (2010 and 2014) and a world championship gold (2016).
