Larsen, 22, is coming off an impressive rookie campaign where he posted career highs in appearances (55), goals (three), assists (eight) and points (11). He averaged just under 18 minutes a night on the Stars blueline and finished sixth on the team in blocked shots.
The Stars did sign journeyman Aaron Rome out of Vancouver, who’ll likely compete with Larsen for a spot in the top four (assuming Alex Goligoski, Trevor Daley and Stephane Robidas are firmly entrenched as the top three.)
Dallas still has an arbitration hearing with RFA rearguard Mark Fistric, and could have 2011 first-round pick Jamie Oleksiak in the mix as well.
