Stars Sign Russian Defenseman

Russian Defenseman Skated in Nine Games for Iowa Stars Last Season

FRISCO, Tex. – Dallas Stars General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today that the club has signed defenseman Vadim Khomitski to a one-year, one-way contract for the 2007-08 season.

“We liked what we saw of Vadim in his brief stint with the Iowa Stars last season, and we feel that his experience at the highest levels of Russian hockey will provide good depth to our club’s defensive group,” said Armstrong. “Vadim is excited about training camp and is looking forward to the competition for a roster spot in Dallas.”

Khomitski, 24, skated in nine games for the Iowa Stars last season before returning home to Russia to tend to his pregnant wife. In those nine games, the 6-2, 203-pound defenseman posted one goal and six assists for seven points, along with 24 penalty minutes.

The native of Voskresensk, Russia, was Dallas’ fourth round selection (No. 123 overall) in the 2000 Entry Draft and spent four seasons from 2002-2006 with CSKA Moscow in the Russian Super League. He skated in 29 games for Mytische Khimik in the Russian Super League last season, collecting 10 points (6 goals, 4 assists) and 52 penalty minutes.

Khomitski has skated for Team Russia in several international tournaments, including the 2006 World Championships, the ROSNO Cup, Four Nations Cup and the Sweden Games. In 51 games for CSKA Moscow during the 2005-06 season, he posted 11 points (five goals and six assists) with 110 penalty minutes and a +6 rating.
