Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has acquired a conditional fourth-round selection in the 2019 NHL Draft in exchange for defenseman Jamie Oleksiak. Pittsburgh currently owns two fourth-round selections in 2019, their own and Minnesota's. Dallas will receive the earlier of the two picks.
Oleksiak, 24, has recorded three points (1-2=3) in 21 games played this season. In six seasons with the Stars, he appeared in 140 regular-season games posting 22 points (7-15=22).
The 6-foot-7, 255-pound native of Toronto, Ontario was originally selected by Dallas in the first round (14th overall) of the 2011 NHL Draft.
