Stars acquire Gonchar's rights

The Dallas Stars have acquired the rights to defenseman Sergei Gonchar from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for a conditional sixth-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.

Gonchar, 39, played in 186 regular-season games with the Senators over three seasons, recording 15 goals, 76 assists and 101 penalty minutes.

"We thank Sergei for his efforts in Ottawa," said Senators GM Bryan Murray. "We felt that this trade will give Sergei the opportunity to extend his career in the NHL and we wish him success with the Stars."

Gonchar is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent July 5. He already has a significant offer to play in the KHL, but sources tell TFP he will strongly consider signing with Dallas. A deal could be reached as soon as tomorrow.

Amongst NHL defensemen in 2012-13, Gonchar was tied for fifth in assists (24) and shared 12th in points (27).

In 1,177 career NHL regular-season games, to date, with the Washington Capitals, Boston Bruins, Pittsburgh Penguins and Senators, Gonchar has accumulated 217 goals and 558 assists for 775 points.
