The Stars have signed Dan Hamhuis for a two-year deal worth $7.5 million ($3.75M AAV).
Hamhuis, 33, was heavily rumoured to the Stars at last season’s trade deadline, but he really wanted to stay in Vancouver and finish out the season. He had 13 points (3G / 10A) in 58 games with the Canucks and now lands in Dallas after all. The big loser in this signing is the Canucks, who lose him for nothing. The Stars lost both Kris Russell and Jason Demers in free agency, so Hamhuis comes in and fills that second-pairing defenseman void.

Hamhuis' injury was a weird one. He went down while trying to turn and appeared to hurt his leg. He was seen limping noticeably after the game and the Canucks recalled Frank Corrado this afternoon, which suggests Hamhuis is going to miss some time.
