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 remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
