Stars acquire centre Shawn Horcoff from Stars for defenceman Philip Larsen and 7th-round pick

The Dallas Stars have made another move in their rebuilding process.

Dallas acquired centre Shawn Horcoff from the Edmonton Oilers for defenceman Philip Larsen and a 2016 seventh-round pick in the NHL draft.

Stars general manager Jim Nill confirmed the trade to The Associated Press on Friday, a couple hours before teams could begin signing free agents.

The 34-year-old Horcoff has spent his entire career in Edmonton. He has 162 goals and 447 assists in 796 games since making his debut during the 2000-01 season.

The 23-year-old Larsen has five goals and 19 points in 95 NHL games.

Dallas previously acquired Boston forwards Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley for forward Loui Eriksson on Thursday in a seven-player trade.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
