24 hours after making qualifying offers to six members of their roster, Dallas has inked the first of the six to a multi-year contract. Dallas drafted Loui Eriksson, a 22-year-old left-winger from Goteborg, Sweden, in 2003,, as the 33rd pick of the draft, has signed a two-year deal with Dallas worth $3.2 million.

Dallas said that he will earn $1.5 in the 2008-09 season, and 1.7 million during the 2009-10 campaign. Eriksson enjoyed a career year with Dallas in 2007-08, playing 69 games, and garnering 31 points.
