FRISCO, Tex. – The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has signed defenseman Dan Jancevski to a two-year, two-way contract through the 2009-10 season. At the NHL level, Jancevski will receive $525,000 in 2008-09 and $550,000 in 2009-10, while he will make $225,000 and $250,000 if he is to play the two seasons at the AHL level.
Jancevski, 26, went scoreless in two games with Dallas last season, and collected two penalty minutes in two contests with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2007-08. Originally drafted by Dallas in the second round (No. 66 overall) of the 1999 Entry Draft, he also skated in two games for the Stars during the 2005-06 campaign.
The 6-3, 218-pound defenseman was dealt from Tampa Bay to Dallas on January 15, 2008, in exchange for right wing Junior Lessard.

He then appeared in 33 games for the Iowa Stars, collecting 10 points (3 goals, 7 assists) and 36 penalty minutes.
