Stars acquire RW Bure from Florida



March 8, 2004

Dallas Stars General Manger Doug Armstrong announced tonight that the NHL club has acquired right wing Valeri Bure from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Dallas' Compensatory Draft Pick in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft (awarded to the Stars for Derian Hatcher's free agent signing with Detroit last summer) and defenseman prospect Drew Bagnall -- the Stars' sixth round selection (195th overall) in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. The trade will be finalized pending Bure passing a medical exam by the Stars on Tuesday in Dallas.

Bure, 29, is currently playing in his 10th NHL season. The 5-10, 180-pound right wing currently leads Florida in scoring with 20 goals and 25 assists for 45 points in 55 games with 20 penalty minutes.

A veteran of 608 NHL games, Bure has scored 172 goals and 221 assists for 393 points over his NHL career, including a career-high 35 goals and 75 points with Calgary in 1999-2000. He was originally drafted by Montreal in the second round (33rd overall) in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft.

"Valeri Bure is a skilled winger that we feel will bring some offensive punch to our team," said Armstrong. "We're very excited to add him to our roster."
Bure is expected to join the Stars on their current road trip upon completion of his medical exam. Dallas plays at Pittsburgh on Tuesday (6:30 PM CT) and at Philadelphia on Thursday (6 PM CT).
