Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Stars started the new year by locking up Joe Pavelski for one more year.

DallasStars.com Senior Staff Writer Mike Heika was the first to report that Pavelski and the Stars had agreed to terms on a one-year contract extension with a base salary of $3.5 million.

Pavelski, 38, has appeared in all 38 games during the 2022-23 season, ranking third on the team in points (37), second in assists (25), and fourth in goals (12). His +23 plus-minus rating also ranks second in the NHL.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to continue being a member of the Stars organization,” said Pavelski. “Sarah, Nate, and I have loved being part of this team and Dallas/Fort Worth community for the past four years. We have an incredible group of players in this locker room, and I am excited to continue to work with my teammates toward our goal of winning the Stanley Cup.”

Dallas Stars GM Jim Nill had high praise for the veteran center.

“Joe continues to prove why he is one of the best players in the NHL, and we are fortunate that he will be part of our group for another season,” Nill said. “He embodies what it means to be a professional hockey player with his approach to the game both on and off the ice. Joe’s leadership in the locker room is invaluable, and the level of respect that he has throughout the entire League speaks volumes to the man that he is.”

Pavelski has appeared in 1,206 regular-season games and has recorded 961 points. He is 75th in goals in NHL history (433) and has also tallied 528 assists.
