Frisco, TX – The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has signed defenseman Jyrki Jokipakka (YUHR-kee, yoh-kih-PA-ka) to a three-year, entry level contract, through the 2014-15 season. 

Jokipakka, 20, skated in 52 games for Ilves Tampere of the Finnish Elite League in 2011-12, leading all defensemen in scoring with 9 goals, 8 assists and 17 points.
