The Dallas Stars on Wednesday signed defenseman Maxime Fortunus to a one-year contract.

Fortunus, 27, had 16 points in 24 games for the Stars' American Hockey League team, the Texas Stars.

His only NHL experience came in 2009-10 with the Stars, when he had a minus-6 rating and four penalty minutes in eight games.

To make room on the roster for Fortunus, the Stars sent defenseman Jamie Oleksiak to the AHL. Oleksiak had a minus-3 rating and five shots on goal in seven games.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
