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

I mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
