Dallas Stars Sign Right Wing Ales Hemsky
Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has signed right wing Ales Hemsky (ahl-EHSH HEHM-skee) to a three-year contract.

Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has signed right wing Ales Hemsky (ahl-EHSH HEHM-skee) to a three-year contract. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Hemsky, 30, registered 43 points (13-30=43) in 75 regular-season games with Edmonton and Ottawa in 2013-14. The forward opened the season in Edmonton, posting 26 points (9-17=26) in 55 contests before being traded to Ottawa, where he finished the regular season with 17 points (4-13=17) in 20 games.

"Ales Hemsky is an accomplished, skilled winger who has great vision and finish," said Nill. "His right-handed shot will complement our forward group nicely and provide balance throughout our lineup."

The native of Pardubice, Czechoslovakia has earned 494 points (146-348=494) in 672 career regular-season contests for Edmonton and Ottawa. Hemsky has surpassed the 40-point plateau six times in his 11-year NHL career, and has posted at least 30 assists five times. The forward has made two Stanley Cup Playoffs appearances including one trip to the Stanley Cup Final with Edmonton in 2006, recording 17 points (6-11=17) in 30 career postseason games.

Hemsky has represented the Czech Republic five times on the international stage, including the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino where he won the bronze medal. The forward has also skated for the Czech Republic at the IIHF World Championships three times (2005, 2009 and 2012), winning a gold medal with the team in 2005 and a bronze in 2012.

The 6-foot, 185-pound forward was originally selected by Edmonton in the first round (13th overall) of the 2001 NHL Draft.
