Young signs two-year deal with Stars
Details weren't released, but ESPN The Magazine's E.J. Hradek reports that the deal is worth $7 million.
Young, 34, played in 67 games with St. Louis last season. The right wing had 19 goals and 22 assists for 41 points with 26 penalty minutes last season with the Blues.
He was a member of Pittsburgh's Stanley Cup championship team in 1991, where he had seven points in 17 playoff games.
Young said he expects the Stars to "be right at the top of the league within the next 24 months. It's an organization that has the pace of a Stanley Cup (team).''
Though Young said Dallas was near the top of his list of teams he wanted to join, it didn't hurt that the Stars on Wednesday had signed former Boston Bruin Bill Guerin.
"It definitely makes it even more attractive because all the pieces that (the Stars) wanted are falling into place,'' Young said.
In 1996, he helped the Colorado Avalanche win the Stanley Cup, scoring three goals and 12 assists for 15 points in 22 postseason outings.
The Clinton, Mass., native was drafted in the first round by the Hartford Whalers in 1986.
Young has played in 970 career NHL games, scoring 293 goals and 357 assists for 650 points with 352 penalty minutes. He's appeared in 127 career playoff games, posting 39 goals and 40 assists for 79 points.
