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

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
