Veteran defenseman Brad Lukowich has resurfaced with the Dallas Stars, the team with which he began his NHL career. He signed a one-year, two-way contract on Friday.

Lukowich, who turns 34 next month, played in 13 games for the Canucks last season. He had a goal, an assist and a plus-5 rating.

In 12 NHL seasons with the Stars, Lightning, Islanders, Devils, Sharks and Canucks, the stay-at-home blueliner has career totals of 23 goals, 113 points, 369 penalty minutes and a plus-43 rating in 653 regular-season games.

Lukowich, who won a Stanley Cup in 2004 with Tampa Bay, also has 1 goal, 6 points and a plus-10 rating in 71 career playoff games.

The Stars also signed defensemen Maxime Fortunus and Trevor Ludwig to one-year, two-way contracts. Fortunus, 26, made his NHL debut with the Stars last season, appearing in eight games, while Ludwig, 25, split time between Texas and Idaho in the ECHL.
Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
