Stars send Edmonton native Mark Fistric to Oilers for 3rd-round pick in 2013 draft

DALLAS - The Dallas Stars have traded defenceman Mark Fistric to the Edmonton Oilers for a third-round pick in this year's draft.

Fistric spent five seasons with the Stars, scoring 23 points and accumulating 220 penalty minutes in 257 games. He led Dallas defencemen with 235 hits last season.

The 26-year-old Fistric, a native of Edmonton, was a first-round pick by the Stars in 2004.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
