Stars deal Barch to Panthers
The Dallas Stars traded forward Krystofer Barch and a sixth-round pick in 2012 to the Florida Panthers in exchange for prospect Jake Hauswirth and a fifth-round pick in 2012.

Barch has no points in 10 games this season. He's known more for his fighting than his scoring -- in 263 career games, he has 10 goals and 578 penalty minutes.

Hauswirth, 23, has bounced from the Washington Capitals to the Panthers but has yet to play in the NHL. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Capitals in 2009 and traded to the Panthers last year along with a third-round draft pick in exchange for defenseman Dennis Wideman.
Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
