Janmark signs one-year contract with Stars

Forward gets $2.3 million, could have been RFA on July 1 @NHLdotcom

Mattias Janmark signed a one-year, $2.3 million contract with the Dallas Stars on Thursday.

The 26-year-old forward, who could have been a restricted free agent July 1, had 25 points (six goals, 19 assists) in 81 regular-season games with the Stars last season and three points (one goal, two assists) in seven Stanley Cup Playoff games. 

"Mattias is a relentless forward who combines his tremendous skating ability with sound positioning, making him a disruptive force," Stars general manager Jim Nill said. "He is a versatile player that can play up and down the lineup at even strength, and was one of the key members of our penalty killing group, which was a top-five unit all season."

Selected by the Detroit Red Wings in the third round (No. 79) of the 2013 NHL Draft, Janmark has 88 points (40 goals, 48 assists) in 235 games, all with the Stars, and eight points (three goals, five assists) in 19 playoff games.

The Stars also signed defenseman Roman Polak to a one-year, $1.75 million contract Thursday. Polak had nine points (one goal, eight assists) in 77 regular-season games with Dallas and one assist in 13 playoff games.
