FRISCO, Tex. - The struggling Dallas Stars are bringing in another veteran.
The Stars signed winger Mark Parrish to a US$500,000, one-year contract on Wednesday. Parrish played 66 games for Minnesota last season and was an unrestricted free agent.
"We feel that Mark will bring a great deal of experience and leadership to our club, as an established veteran in this league," GM Les Jackson said in a statement. "He is a talented player with some obvious two-way capabilities and we feel he will be a positive addition to our group."
The 31-year-old Parrish has 372 points (208-164) in 660 career NHL games for Florida, Los Angeles, Minnesota and the New York Islanders.
He's a former NHL all-star who was part of the U.S. team at the 2006 Olympics.
Dallas is off to a slow start with a 4-6-2 record and has allowed a league-worst 50 goals so far this season.
