Dallas, TX, United States (4E Sports) - The Dallas Stars sign forward Cody Eakin in a two-year deal which was reportedly worth $3.8 million.

Eakins played 81 games for the Stars last season and had 16 goals with 19 assists for 35 points.

The 22-year old made his debut in the Stanley Cup playoffs last season playing in six games, posting 2 goals and three assists.

"Cody is a two-way, young forward who competes hard and has the ability to make plays offensively," Stars GM Jim Nill stated.

Nill believes that Eakin is just scratching the surface and will mature as a player in the next two years.

In his NHL career, Eakin has a total of 27 goals with 40 assists for 67 points, playing with the Stars and the team that originally drafted him, the Washington Capitals.

He was acquired by the Stars in exchange for center Mike Ribeiro and the 54th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft according to the team's website.
