Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has signed forward Adam Cracknell to a one-year, $675,000 contract extension.
Cracknell, 31, has posted career-highs in games played (53), goals (7) and blocked shots (32) this season. His ten points (7-3=10) are tied for his career high that he set last season in 52 games with Vancouver and Edmonton.
Appearing in parts of seven NHL seasons, he has recorded 37 career regular season NHL points (18-19=37) in 187 games with St. Louis, Columbus, Vancouver, Edmonton and Dallas. He has also appeared in ten career Stanley Cup Playoff games, all in his time with St. Louis, recording one goal and 40 hits.
"Adam stepped into our lineup this season and established himself as a valuable member of our team," said Nill. "He plays a heavy, physical game and has been steady and reliable for us all season long."
The 6-foot-3, 220-pound native of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan was originally selected by Calgary in the ninth round (279th overall) of the 2004 NHL Draft. He was signed by Dallas as a free agent on July 3, 2016.
