Stars claim Brendan Morrison off waivers
Brendan Morrison's tenure with the Anaheim Ducks ended after 62 games Wednesday, as the Dallas Stars claimed the veteran forward off re-entry waivers.
Dallas and Anaheim will split what's left on Morrison's $2.75 million US contract this season. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
Morrison, 33, signed a one-year deal with the Ducks last summer, but has under-performed in Anaheim, tallying 10 goals and 12 assists.
Morrison, from Pitt Meadows, B.C., spent eight seasons with the Vancouver Canucks before singing with Dallas. He has 169 goals and 496 points in 736 career games.
"Brendan Morrison is a skilled veteran who brings valuable experience and character to our team for this playoff push," said the Stars' co-GM Les Jackson. "He is a strong competitor who we are excited to add to our group."
