DALLAS STARS ACQUIRE CONDITIONAL 2009 SEVENTH-ROUND DRAFT PICK
From Colorado Avalanche in Exchange For Marty Sertich
FRISCO, Tex. – The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has acquired a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for center Marty Sertich.
Sertich, 25, was signed by Dallas as a free agent on July 10, 2006, and spent the last two seasons with the Iowa Stars in the American Hockey League. In 75 games with Iowa last season, the 5-9, 165-pound center collected 47 points (22 goals and 25 assists) and 42 penalty minutes, leading the club in goals and power play goals (8) and placing second in points and fourth in assists.
The native of Roseville, Minn., won the Hobey Baker Award as collegiate hockey’s top player in 2005, as a junior at Colorado College. He led the nation in scoring with 64 points that season and helped the Tigers to their first Frozen Four since 1997.
