Stars goalie Bachman gets $625K deal for 2012-12

The Dallas Stars have signed goaltender Richard Bachman to a $625,000 contract for next season.

Dallas also Thursday signed forward Colton Sceviour to a two-way contract for the 2012-13 season.

Bachman was 8-5-1 with a 2.77 goals-against average as a rookie last season in Dallas. He had a .910 save percentage in 18 games, and became the first rookie goaltender in Stars history to win his first three NHL starts and the first to start seven consecutive games.

Bachman was drafted in the fourth round of the 2006 NHL draft by the Stars.

Sceviour, a fourth-round draft pick in 2007, spent the past three seasons with the Texas Stars in the American Hockey League. He had 21 goals and 32 assists in 75 games last season.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
