Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill announced on Thursday that the team has signed goaltender Scott Wedgewood to a two-year contract extension worth $2 million.

The contract extends the 29-year-old through to the 2023-2024 season.

Wedgewood has spent time with several NHL clubs, including the New Jersey Devils, Arizona Coyotes and Buffalo Sabres. During the 2021-2022 season alone, Wedgewood bounced between three different teams — New Jersey, Arizona and Dallas.

Wedgewood was 13-15-6 with a 3.14 goals-against average and .910 save percentage

He was acquired by Dallas via trade from Arizona on March 20, 2022, in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2023 NHL Draft. Wedgewood appeared in just eight games for the Stars.

In 77 career games, Wedgewood has posted a 23-33-14 record, 3.11 goals against average, and .906 save percentage.
