Dallas General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk announced Saturday that right wing Jonathan Cheechoo has accepted an invitation to attend the Stars' training camp for a tryout.

"We're pleased that Jonathan has accepted our invitation to come to our training camp," Nieuwendyk said in a statement. "He has shown the ability to be an effective scorer in this league. He's a competitor and we're going to give him an opportunity."

Cheechoo, 29, played in 61 games with the Ottawa Senators in 2009-10, registering 5  goals, 9 assists and 20 penalty minutes.

The native of Moose Factory, Ont., was San Jose's second-round pick (No. 29) in the 1998 Entry Draft. In 501 regular-season games, he has 170 goals and 135 assists, along with 324 penalty minutes. He has 16 goals, 19 assists and 32 PIM in 59 career playoff games.

Cheechoo's best season came in 2005-06, when he won the Rocket Richard Trophy as the NHL's leading goal-scorer by scoring 56 times for the San Jose Sharks. Cheechoo was also voted as a starter for the 2007 NHL All-Star Game.

The Stars begin training camp on Sept. 17 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.
Quote of the Day

I think everybody wanted the puck tonight. Everybody wanted to be part of the solution and it reflected on the way we played. It's tiring when you have to chase the puck but tonight was one of those nights where everyone really wanted to make a play and wanted to have an impact on the game.
