Dallas Stars Continue to Shape Roster

Ian RobinettSenior Analyst IJuly 4, 2008

While most people are out preparing their personal fireworks displays, the Dallas Stars are building their roster for the upcoming season.

After signing Sean Avery to a four-year deal, Dallas then inked youngster B. J. Crombeen to a one-year contract worth $550,000.  Crombeen played eight games for Dallas during their 2007-08 campaign, and was able to get two assists while chalking up 39 penalty minutes.  Crombeen will add another physical presence to Dallas lineup, standing alongside the likes of Sean Avery, Brenden Morrow, and Steve Ott.

Dallas has also signed veteran right winger Landon Wilson, son of Stars assistant coach Rick Wilson, to a one year deal.  In his NHL career, Wilson has notched 51 goals and 60 assists in 348 career games.

The Stars were also able to sign two-year contracts with Francis Wathier, Maxime Fortunus, and Garrett Stafford.  All three played in the minors last season.  On a somewhat sad note, the Stars lost the opportunity to sign one of the best young talents they had.  Antti Miettinen signed a multi-year deal with the Minnesota Wild.
