Dallas Stars sign Cristopher Nilstorp to one-year contract

The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has signed goaltender Cristopher Nilstorp to a one-year, two-way contract through the 2013-14 season.

Nilstorp, 29, posted a 1-3-1 record in five appearances last season for Dallas with a .897 save percentage (SV%) and a 3.09 goals-against- average (GAA) during his rookie campaign in the NHL. He recorded the first win of his career against San Jose on Feb. 23, 2013, stopping 31-of-32 shots faced.

The Malmo, Sweden, native appeared in 39 games last season with the Texas Stars, Dallas' development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL), recording a .907 SV% and 2.38 GAA with a record of 19-13-3. He finished the 2012-13 season tied 12th amongst AHL goaltenders in GAA. Nilstorp appeared in nine games during the 2013 Calder Cup Playoffs, posting a .922 SV%, 2.30 GAA with a 4-5-0 record.

Prior to joining the Dallas Stars organization last summer, Nilstorp helped Farjestad BK capture the Le Mat Trophy in 2011, which is earned annually by the victors in the Swedish Elite League playoffs. He went undrafted and was signed by Dallas as a free agent on June 5, 2012.
