Dallas Stars agree to terms with free agent forward Jason Williams


Frisco, Tex. – The Dallas Stars announced today that the NHL club has signed forward Jason Williams to a free agent contract for the remainder of the season. The deal is a two-way contract ($500,000/$105,000). Williams is expected to practice with the Stars today and be available for Sunday’s home game vs. Columbus.

Williams, 30, is a veteran of 420 NHL games, scoring 91 goals and 129 assists for 220 points. He won a Stanley Cup with Detroit in 2002, and has 27 career playoff games on his record (one goal, two assists). Williams began this season with the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL), playing in 17 games with four goals and five assists for nine points and 10 penalty minutes.

“Jason Williams has won a Stanley Cup and brings veteran experience to our club,” said Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk. “He has the versatility to play any forward position and gives us another right-handed shot. We’re pleased that we could add him to our team.”

Williams played in 44 games for Detroit last season, scoring six goals and nine assists for 15 points. He has also played for Chicago, Atlanta and Columbus over his career.

The Pacific Division-leading Stars host the Blue Jackets on Sunday afternoon at American Airlines Center (2 pm, FOX Sports Southwest, Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket).
