2005-06 Finnish Elite League Rookie of the Year Signs Three-Year Entry Level Deal

FRISCO, Tex. -- Dallas Stars General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today that the club has signed 2005 third round draft selection Perttu Lindgren to a three-year entry level contract. Per club policy, no financial terms were disclosed.

"We really like what we have seen in Perttu in Finland and are happy to have him under contract for the next three seasons," said Assistant General Manager Les Jackson. "He was one of the top young prospects in the Finnish Elite League last year and has shown us the ability to be a very good two-way player."

Lindgren, 18, appeared in 51 games with Ilves of the Finnish Elite League during the 2005-06 season, recording 13 goals and 24 assists for 37 points with 16 penalty minutes and a +14 rating. He was named the league's 2005-06 Rookie of the Year. Among team leaders, he ranked second in points, third in goals and third in assists.

The 6-0, 183-pound center also played in all seven games for Finland at the 2006 World Junior Championships in Vancouver. Helping Team Finland take home the bronze, Lindgren posted two goals and four assists for six points with a +5 rating during the tournament.

The Stars' third round selection (75th overall) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Lindgren played the 2004-05 season with Ilves of the Finnish Junior League. In 38 contests, he posted 12 goals and 29 assists for 41 points with two penalty minutes. The Tampere, Finland, native also made two appearances with Ilves of the Finnish Elite League in '04-05, going scoreless.
