Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the team has signed forward Colton Sceviour to a two-year contract through the 2015-16 season. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Sceviour is in his fifth season with the Stars organization, having spent the majority of his professional career with the Texas Stars, Dallas’ development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). The Red Deer, Alta., native leads the AHL with 31 goals this season, ranks third in the League with 61 points (31-30=61) and is Texas’ all-time leader in games played (344), goals (98), shorthanded goals (9), game-winning goals (22) and shots (946). The 6-foot, 200-pound forward has recorded 238 points (98-140=238) in 344 career games in the AHL.
“Colton has been a very reliable and effective player for our organization during his professional hockey career,” said Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill. “He has become an elite player at the American Hockey League level and we look forward to his continued growth with the Dallas Stars.”
The 24-year-old made his NHL debut with Dallas on Feb. 5, 2011 at Philadelphia and scored his first career NHL goal on Dec. 14, 2013 at Winnipeg. He has five points in 10 career NHL contests (3-2=5), including two game-winning goals.
Sceviour was Dallas’ fourth-round selection (112th overall) in the 2007 NHL Draft.
