Defenseman Mark Fistric and the Dallas Stars reportedly have agreed to a one-year contract, avoiding arbitration.
The Dallas Morning News reports the deal is worth $1.45 million.
Fistric had an arbitration hearing scheduled for Aug. 1.
The 26-year-old played 60 games for the Stars last season. He has played parts of five seasons for Dallas after he was chosen in the first round (No. 28) in the 2004 NHL Draft.
