Dallas Stars: From Rumor to Reality, Sean Avery Signs

Ian RobinettSenior Analyst IOctober 25, 2016

It didn't take Brett Hull, Les Jackson, and the Dallas Stars long to sign Sean Avery.

Just hours after the team announced they were in negotiations with the forward, Avery put his name on the dotted line.

The Stars and Avery came to an agreement to a four-year, $15.5 million contract, that will keep him in "Big D" through the 2011-2012 season.

In a press release from the Dallas Stars co-General Manager, Brett Hull said, “We are excited about the opportunity to add a player like Sean Avery to our group," and “His ability to play the game with skill and tenacity makes us a better team and is a great complement to the players we have here.”

Avery, a native of Pickering, Ontario, Canada, will be entering into his 7th season in the NHL when he joins Dallas for the 2008-09 campaign.  In his previous six seasons, he has amassed 65 goals, 102 assists, and a massive 1067 penalty minutes.
