Dallas Stars Sign Forward Ray Whitney to Two-Year Contract

Frisco, TX – The Dallas Stars announced today the club has signed forward Ray Whitney to a two-year, $9 million contract through the 2013-14 season ($4.5 million per season).

Whitney, 40, collected 77 points (24 goals, 53 assists) in 82 games for Phoenix last season, good for 12th in the league in points, and earned Second-Team All-NHL honors. Among league leaders, he was sixth in assists and ninth in plus/minus (+26), and he led the Coyotes in points, assists and plus/minus.

“Ray Whitney was among the most productive players in the league last season and showed he remains extremely capable and dangerous,” Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk said. “He’s a winner, a competitor and a leader, and we’re very excited he’ll be a Dallas Star.”

The 5-foot-10, 180-pound forward from Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, ranks seventh amongst active NHL players in games played (1,229) and career points (1,003), sixth in assists (638) and 12th in goals (365). Last season as a member of the Coyotes, Whitney recorded his highest point total since his 2008-09 campaign with Carolina (32 goals, 51 assists for 83 points). He recorded his 1,000th career point last season against Anaheim on March 31, becoming only the 79th player in league history to reach 1,000 career points.

Whitney was a member of the 2006 Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes, and in 103 career Stanley Cup Playoff games, has recorded 21 goals and 32 assists for 52 points. In 16 playoff games with Phoenix last season, Whitney collected seven points (2 goals, 5 assists).

Selected 23rd overall in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft by the San Jose Sharks, Whitney has played for seven franchises (San Jose, Edmonton, Florida, Columbus, Detroit, Carolina and Phoenix) over the course of his 20 NHL seasons
