Defenseman Cameron Gaunce has signed a one-year contract with the Dallas Stars, the team announced Friday. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Gaunce, 24, played in nine games with Dallas last season, and 65 with the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League.

The Markham, Ontario, native led Texas defensemen with a plus-15 rating and had three goals and 15 assists. Gaunce had four assists and a plus-6 rating in 18 Calder Cup Playoff games, helping Texas win the championship.

Gaunce was chosen by the Colorado Avalanche in the second round (No. 50) of the 2008 NHL Draft. He was acquired April 2, 2013, by Dallas in a trade for center Tomas Vincour.

Gaunce has one goal in 20 NHL games with Colorado and Dallas.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
