Stars Give Boucher Extension



March 3, 2006

The Dallas Stars took a proactive step to ensuring that one of their most consistent blue-liners will remain with the team for at least three more years.

General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Friday that the club has signed defenseman Philippe Boucher to a new three-year contract extension through the 2008-2009 season. Boucher's current contract was set to expire on June 30, 2006.

"We are pleased to sign Philippe Boucher to a new contract that will keep him with the Dallas Stars for the next three seasons," said Armstrong. "Philippe has been a consistent performer for our hockey club and we are looking forward to his next three years with our organization."

Boucher, 32, has set a career-high in goals (12) and points (31) this season in 44 games played. He also has 19 assists, five power play goals and three game-winning goals to go along with his +22 rating.

The 6-3, 218-pound defenseman has appeared in 571 career NHL games and has recorded 66 goals and 148 assists for 214 points with 509 penalty minutes. Since signing with Dallas as a free agent on July 2, 2002, Boucher has played in 194 games with the Stars, posting 27 goals and 55 assists for 82 points with a +65 rating. The +65 rating is the best among Dallas players since 2002.

Over 41 playoff games during his career, Boucher has tallied three goals and two assists for five points with 23 penalty minutes. The St. Apollinaire, Quebec native has played in 16 post-season contests while with the Stars, collecting two goals and two assists for four points with 17 penalty minutes.

Voted as the Stars' nominee for the Bill Masterton Trophy as the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey, Boucher has dealt with several injuries over his 14-year career. He underwent eye surgery after taking a shot in his face on Nov. 28, 2003. Following the 2001-02 season, he underwent eye surgery to repair a damaged retina. During the 1999-00 season, Boucher missed virtually the entire year while recovering from a foot injury that required two surgeries, including corrective surgery. He also had surgeries on his right hand (at the end of the 1995-96 season) and on his wrist that caused him to miss the remainder of the 1994-95 regular season.

"I am very happy to get this new contract finalized with the Stars," said Boucher. "My family and I love the city of Dallas and we are excited to know we will be here for three more years. I have been through a lot during my career, but everything has seem to come together during my time in Dallas and I thank the Dallas Stars organization for their support."
