Dallas Stars’ Off-Season MovesSports Friday, July 5th, 2013
DALLAS (AP) _ Free agent goaltender Dan Ellis has signed a two-year, $1.8 million contract with Dallas, where he made his NHL debut nine years ago.
The deal announced Friday was the latest in a busy week for the Stars, who have made two trades to acquire three centers.
The 33-year-old Ellis was 6-8-2 in 19 appearances with Carolina last season. He has a 2.73 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage in 184 career games.
Ellis, a second-round pick by Dallas in 2000, was on the roster behind Marty Turco when he played his only game for the Stars, a 4-3 win at Los Angeles on Feb. 18, 2004. This time he’s likely to be behind Kari Lehtonen.
He has also played for Nashville, Tampa Bay and Anaheim.
