The Dallas Stars Acquire Jamie Oleksiak From The Pittsburgh Penguins

FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has acquired defenseman Jamie Oleksiak from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a fourth-round selection in the 2019 NHL Draft. The fourth-round selection was originally acquired by the Stars from the Penguins on Dec. 19, 2017 in exchange for Oleksiak.

Oleksiak, 26, has appeared in 36 games this season for the Penguins, registering 11 points (4-7=11) and a +5 plus/minus rating. His 97 hits were third on the team, and his four goals were second amongst Penguins defensemen. Since being acquired by Pittsburgh, he appeared in 83 regular-season games played, recording 25 points (8-17=25) and a +18 plus/minus. He appeared in 12 postseason contests last season as well, recording one goal and 39 hits.

"Our blueline has been depleted by injury all season and acquiring Jamie will give us depth at defense," said Nill. "We know him very well and we're excited to have him back in the fold."

The 6-foot-7, 255-pound native of Toronto, Ont. was originally selected by Dallas in the first round (14th overall) of the 2011 NHL Draft.

Additionally, defenseman Marc Methot underwent successful surgery to repair a cartilage defect in his left knee. The season-ending surgery was performed by Dr. Brian Cole at the Rush Clinic in Chicago, Illinois.
