The Dallas Stars have signed free agent veteran Scott Young to a two year contract. The deal is worth a reported $7 million. Team officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
34 year-old Young played in 67 games with St. Louis last season. The right wing had 19 goals and 22 assists for 41 points with 26 penalty minutes last season with the Blues. He was a member of Pittsburgh's Stanley Cup championship team in 1991, where he had seven points in 17 playoff games.
Young says he expects the Stars to be right at the top of the league within the next 24 months. It's an organization that has the pace of a Stanley Cup team. Young says that Dallas was near the top of his list of teams he wanted to join, but it didn't hurt that the Stars on Wednesday had signed former Boston Bruin Bill Guerin. In 1996, he helped the Colorado Avalanche win the Stanley Cup, scoring three goals and 12 assists for 15 points in 22 postseason outings.
