DALLAS STARS SIGN JEFF HALPERN TO FOUR-YEAR DEAL
Washington's Captain Signs Through the 2009-10 Season

FRISCO, Tex. -- Dallas Stars General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today that the club has signed center Jeff Halpern (pronounced HAL-pern) to a four-year deal through the 2009-10 season. Per club policy, no financial terms were disclosed.

"Jeff is a versatile center who adds solid leadership and experience to our roster," said Armstrong. "He served as Washington's captain last season so we like what he brings to our hockey club both on and off the ice. We look forward to having him in Dallas for the next four seasons."

Halpern, 30, appeared in 70 games with Washington last season, registering 11 goals and 33 assists for 44 points with 79 penalty minutes. Serving as the Capitals' captain in 2005-06, he ranked third on the team in assists (33) and points (44) and finished fourth in power play points (6-14-20). His 33 assists were a career-high.

Over his six-year NHL career with Washington from 1999-06, Halpern played in 438 contests and posted 214 points (87-127-214) with 351 penalty minutes. The 6-0, 198-pound center has also appeared in 17 playoff games with the Caps over three playoff years, notching four goals and five assists for nine points with 19 penalty minutes.

The Potomac, Maryland, native represented the United States at the 2004 World Cup, as well as four World Championships (2000, 2001, 2004, 2005). In 32 contests at the World Championships, Halpern has recorded five goals and four assists for nine points with 18 penalty minutes. He was scoreless in four outings during the 2004 World Cup.

Prior to signing with Washington as a free agent on March 30, 1999, Halpern played four seasons for Princeton of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) from 1995-99. Ranking first on the school's career games played list (132), third in points (141), and third in assists (81), Halpern is one of four players to win the Blackwell Trophy as team MVP three times. He was also named to the Second-Team All-ECAC in 1998 and 1999, and was the ECAC Tournament MVP in 1998.
