DALLAS (AP) -The Dallas Stars have signed left wing Loui Eriksson to a six-year, $25.5 million extension.

Eriksson's signing Friday came after he led the Stars with a career-high 36 goals last season. That was the most for a Dallas player since Brett Hull had 39 in 2000-01. Eriksson is signed through the 2015-16 season.

The 24-year-old Eriksson has 113 points (56 goals, 57 assists) in 210 career games. He is expected to play for his native Sweden in the Olympics in February.

Dallas opens the season Saturday night at home against Nashville.
