The Stars signed Jiri Hudler to a one-year deal worth $2 million.
Hudler had a career-year in 2014-15, picking up 31 goals and 45 assists (76 points), but struggled to come close to repeating those numbers last season. He had 35 points (10G / 25A) in 53 games with the Flames before being traded to the Panthers at the deadline—he added 11 points in 19 games with Florida. He now signs with Dallas, where he figures to battle with some of their young forwards for a top-6 role.
The Panthers have acquired Jiri Hudler from the Flames for a 2016 second round pick and a 2018 fourth round pick.
Hudler, 32, has had a down season after posted a career-high 76 points (31G / 45A) in 78 games last season. He has 10 goals and 25 assists (35 points) in 53 games this season and now he heads to Florida where he will be part of a Stanley Cup bid before becoming a free agent this summer. Look for him to play on a line with Nick Bjugstad.
