The 26-year-old Fistric was taken by the Stars in the first round (No. 26) back in 2004 and played his entire five-year career with the team, totaling three goals, 23 points and 220 penalty minutes in 257 games.
The Edmonton native had two assists and 41 penalty minutes in 60 games for the Stars last season.
It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
