DALLAS – The Dallas Stars made a roster move hours after announcing controversial forward Sean Avery would not be returning to the team.
Dallas acquired forward Brian Sutherby from the Anaheim Ducks for David McIntyre and a conditional 2010 sixth-round draft pick.
The club also re-assigned defenceman Dan Jancevski to the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs.
Sutherby skated in 17 games with Anaheim this season, recording three goals and three assists with 19 penalty minutes. The six-foot-three, 209-pound centre has appeared in 321 career NHL games with Washington and Anaheim, recording 68 points (29 goals, 39 assists) and 357 penalty minutes.
The Edmonton native’s best season came in 2005-’06 with Washington, when he notched 14 goals and 16 assists for 30 points in 69 games.
Jancevski returns to Hamilton after being recalled by Dallas on Dec. 11.
He has skated in 25 games with Hamilton this season, recording a goal and nine assists – the most of any Bulldogs defenceman this season.
The native of Windsor, Ont., has gone scoreless in six career NHL games, including two last season with Dallas.
McIntyre is competing in his junior season at Colgate University of the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference. The five-foot-11, 190-pound forward has a team-leading 12 points in 14 games.
