FRISCO, Texas - The Dallas Stars and free agent forward Ales Hemsky have agreed to terms on a contract reportedly worth $12 million over three years.
The deal reached Tuesday reunites Hemsky with Jason Spezza after they were briefly teammates in Ottawa last season. Spezza came to Dallas in a trade before free agency opened.
The 30-year-old Hemsky spent his first 10 seasons with Edmonton before a midseason trade to the Senators in March. The Czech winger has 146 goals and 348 assists in 672 games.
The Stars also signed goalie Anders Lindback to a one-year contract. The 26-year-old appeared in 23 regular-season games and all four playoff games for Tampa Bay last season. The four-year veteran has a .904 save percentage and 2.74 goals-against average for his career.
I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
