Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has signed center Brett Pollock to a three-year entry-level contract. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Pollock, 19, is currently playing in his fourth season with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League (WHL). He currently is tied for the team lead with 32 points (11-21=32) in 30 games played this season. His 21 assists are tied for 16th in the WHL and his +14 plus/minus rating is tied for 11th.
In 211 career regular season games, all with Edmonton, he has produced 153 points (70-83=153). In his first two seasons with the Oil Kings, he played for current Texas Stars head coach Derek Laxdal.
"Brett has a combination of size and speed that we like and he is dedicated to strengthening every part of his game," said Nill. "His time in Edmonton playing for Steve Hamilton, and Derek Laxdal prior to that, has given him a solid foundation and we look forward to his continued development."
The 6-foot-2, 200-pound native of Sherwood Park, Alberta was originally selected by Dallas in the second round (45th overall) of the 2014 NHL Draft.
