DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The Dallas Stars have made another move in their rebuilding process.
Dallas acquired center Shawn Horcoff from the Edmonton Oilers for defenseman Philip Larsen and a 2016 seventh-round pick in the NHL draft.
The 34-year-old Horcoff has spent his entire career in Edmonton. He has 162 goals and 447 assists in 796 games since making his debut during the 2000-01 season.
“Shawn is a proven leader in this League and helps solidify our group at center,” stated Nill. “He’s a hard-working, two-way player that can contribute in all situations and our young players will be able to learn from his work ethic and example.”
The 23-year-old Larsen has five goals and 19 points in 95 NHL games.
Dallas previously acquired Boston forwards Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley for forward Loui Eriksson on Thursday in a seven-player trade.
