Dallas Stars Lock Up RFA Forward

The Dallas Stars have announced they have signed forward Roope Hintz to a three-year contract that pays the versatile forward $3.15 million per season.

Hintz burst onto the scene this season for the Stars, as the 23-year-old recorded 33 points in 60 games and added 13 more points in the Stars playoff run to the Stanley Cup finals.

Hintz was originally selected 49th overall in the 2015 draft and now gives the Stars a full 23-man NHL roster for next year.  

Look for Hintz to continue to develop as the everyday #2 center in Dallas, and the 1-2 punch between him and Tyler Seguin is going to be fun to watch in Dallas for a long time.
