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.

I didn't think it would actually work, but it ended up working, so I'm thanking my lucky stars tonight.
