The Dallas Stars signed forward Colton Sceviour to a two-year contract extension on Friday. The team didn’t share details regarding the financial terms or whether it’s a one-way or two-way contract.
Sceviour, 24, generated five points in 10 games spread out over three seasons at the NHL level, including four in eight this season. Stars GM Jim Nill calls him an “elite player at the AHL level,” which seems fair as he has 31 goals and 61 points in 50 games for the Texas Stars.
This is good news for Stars fans. Sceviour has been a loyal soldier and earned this extension. He still has to battle waiver issues if he comes up to the NHL (he has two games left on regular call-up to avoid waivers or nine games left on emergency call-up), but this makes it clear that Sceviour is a part of their plans for the future.
