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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
