DALLAS STARS SIGN JOHAN HEDBERG TO A ONE-YEAR CONTRACT
Netminder Has Played 137 Career NHL Games and 20 Stanley Cup Playoff Contests

FRISCO, Tex. -- Dallas Stars General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today that the club has signed free agent goaltender Johan Hedberg to a one-year contract. Per club policy, no financial terms were disclosed.

"It was important for us to find a veteran backup for Marty Turco, and Johan has established a track record at the NHL level," said Armstrong. "We're pleased to welcome him to the organization."

Hedberg, 32, has appeared in 137 career NHL games with Pittsburgh and Vancouver, posting a 54-63-14 record with a 2.83 goals-against-average, a .901 save percentage, 10 shutouts and three assists. He was Pittsburgh's starting goaltender for two seasons from 2001-2003, recording a 39-56-11 mark with a 2.90 GAA and seven shutouts. The native of Leksand, Sweden, also played in 18 playoff games for the Penguins in 2001, posting a 9-9 record and a 2.30 goals-against-average.

The 6-0, 190-lb. netminder split the 2003-04 season between Vancouver and Manitoba of the American Hockey League, and with the Canucks, he notched an 8-6-2 record with a 2.52 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage. Hedberg played in two playoff games for Vancouver in 2004, going 1-1 with a 2.45 GAA and a .922 save percentage.

In 2004-05, Hedberg played for Leksand IF in the Swedish second division, registering a 2.15 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage. Hedberg played for Team Sweden at the 1998 and 2002 Winter Olympics and was a ninth round pick (No. 218 overall) by Philadelphia in the 1994 Entry Draft.
