FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has signed defenseman Reece Scarlett to a one-year, two-way contract.
Scarlett, 26, skated in one American Hockey League (AHL) contest with the Texas Stars in 2018-19, suffering a season-ending knee injury on Oct. 5. The defenseman has registered 102 points (19-83=102) in 274 career regular-season AHL contests with Albany, Springfield and Texas. He has also made two trips to the Calder Cup Playoffs, appearing in 32 career postseason AHL games and recording three points (0-3=3) with Albany and Texas.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound native of Sherwood Park, Alberta was originally selected by New Jersey in the sixth round (159th overall) of the 2011 NHL Draft and was acquired by Dallas via trade with Florida in exchange for defenseman Ludwig Bystrom on Nov. 10, 2017.
