Dallas Re-Ups Janmark

On Wednesday, the Dallas Stars agreed on a new deal with Mattias Janmark, signing the 25-year old Swede to a new 1-year, $2.3 million deal.

Janmark had himself a pretty good bounce back season with the Stars in 2018, after missing the 2017 season due to injury, playing in 81 games, scoring 19 goals and 34 points.  He was the 182nd ranked forward in the hockey pool ranks and he's certainly on the upswing in his career trajectory.

The 1-year deal is somewhat shorter than expected, but it does offer the Stars a little more flexibility for next summer, when they get to renegotiate his deal.

With this signing now under wraps, the Stars are offering a pretty strong offensive lineup on paper and expectations are likely going to be pretty high for most of their top players.  I am projecting a 40-point season for Janmark and more points for some of his teammates in the coming year.  I am getting the feeling that the Stars will be a popular team at the draft this year.
