The Dallas Stars have claimed former Ducks center Brendan Morrison off waivers.

Morrison was placed on waivers by the Ducks as of 9 a.m. (Pacific) Tuesday morning and was claimed by the Stars within the required 24-hour time period.

The 33-year-old Morrison was signed to a one-year free agent contract by Anaheim last July. He had 10 goals and 12 assists in 62 games with the Ducks this season.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
