That was particularly true over the past two seasons, when he scored six goals and had nine assists against Dallas in nine regular-season games.
But after a trade with the Blackhawks earlier this month made him their teammate, several Stars were more than happy to welcome Sharp to town.
Captain Jamie Benn was joined by defenseman Jason Demers and forwards Tyler Seguin and Ales Hemsky at American Airlines Center on Monday for Sharp’s introductory press conference. It was obvious they’re excited to play with Sharp, who helped the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup three times in six seasons.
“A good two-way player. He’s a clear winner,” said Seguin, whose 37 goals led the Stars and were tied for fifth in the NHL last season. “I’ve always been a little bitter towards him since I feel like he stole the Cup from me in Boston [in 2013], but I’m really excited to see what he can do. I know he’s a guy who likes to shoot the puck and he’s a guy that he really seems to find his ways to get open out there.”
