Miettinen Awarded One-Year Contract


DALLAS STARS RIGHT WING ANTTI MIETTINEN
AWARDED ONE-YEAR CONTRACT

FRISCO, Tex. – Dallas Stars General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today that right wing Antti Miettinen has been awarded a one-year, $885,000 contract by a Toronto arbitrator.

Miettinen, 27, collected 11 goals and 14 assists for 25 points in 74 games with the Stars last season. He ranked third on the team in hits (145) and logged an average of 14:19 minutes of ice time during the 2006-07 season. During the 2007 playoffs, he tallied two points (1-1-2) in four games.

“We’re happy to have this process behind us and to have Antti under contract for the upcoming season,” said Armstrong. “We accept the arbitrator’s decision as a neutral party.”

The 6-0, 190-pound right wing has appeared in 169 career NHL games with Dallas, posting 23 goals and 34 assists for 57 points with 84 penalty minutes. He has also skated in nine Stanley Cup playoff games over his career, notching one goal and two assists for three points.

The Hameenlinna, Finland, native appeared in his first full NHL season with the Stars in 2005-06, registering 11 goals and 20 assists for 31 points in 79 contests. The first NHL action he saw came during the 2003-04 season with Dallas when he recorded one goal in 16 games before playing the reminder of the season with the Utah Grizzlies of the American Hockey League.

Dallas’ seventh round selection (224th overall) in the 2000 Entry Draft, Miettinen was named the Finnish Elite League Player of the Year in 2002-03 with HPK Hameenlinna. He skated for Team Finland at the 2003 World Junior Championships and was selected to represent his country at the 2006 Winter Olympics, but had to withdraw due to injury.
