The Dallas Stars farm system was particularly busy today as the Stars signed three prospects to entry-level contracts.
Center Rhett Gardner, a fourth-round pick by the Stars in 2016, was signed to a two-year deal. Gardner, 23, had eight goals and 15 points in his senior season this year while playing at the University of North Dakota. At 6-3, 210 lb., he brings plenty of size and skill at the center position. He finished his college career with 74 points in 149 games played as well as a national championship.
