Stars get D Sergei Gonchar from Senators for conditional 6th-round pick this year

DALLAS - The Dallas Stars acquired defenceman Sergei Gonchar from Ottawa on Friday for a conditional sixth-round draft pick this year.

Gonchar had 15 goals and 76 assists in 186 games over three seasons for the Senators. He led Ottawa defencemen in scoring with 27 points — three goals and 24 assists — this season, the last of a three-year, $16.5 million contract.

The 39-year-old Gonchar, set to become an unrestricted free agent July 5, has 217 goals and 558 assists in 1,117 games over 18 seasons. The Russian spent his first nine seasons with Washington and also played for Boston and Pittsburgh.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
