Stars sign goalie Ellis to two-year contract
The Dallas Stars have signed goaltender Dan Ellis to a two-year contract.

The Dallas Stars have signed goaltender Dan Ellis to a two-year contract. Terms of the deal were not released, but Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com is reporting that Ellis will earn $900,000 per season.

"Dan is a proven goaltender in this League and he will be a great complement to Kari Lehtonen," Stars general manager Jim Nill said in a statement. "He's a true professional that will compete hard each and every day."

Ellis, originally drafted by the Stars in the second round (No. 60) of the 2000 NHL Draft, went 6-8-2 with a 3.13 goals-against average and .906 save percentage in 19 games with the Carolina Hurricanes during the 2012-13 season.

In seven seasons, Ellis, 33, has appeared in 184 career regular-season games with the Stars, Nashville Predators, Tampa Bay Lightning, Anaheim Ducks and Hurricanes. He has a career record of 78-65-17 with 13 shutouts, a .908 save percentage and a 2.73 GAA.

Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
