Report: Dallas Stars Lock Up One of Their Top RFAs

Last season saw the Stars fall short to the Calgary Flames in the first round of the 2022 NHL playoffs. This off-season, the Stars had two of their top players hit restricted free agency. With training camp just weeks away, both players remained unsigned until recently as the Stars found mutual ground with one of their top RFAs signing him to an extension.

Those two players are some of their best overall in forward Jason Robertson and goaltender Jake Oettinger who have been without a contract all summer.

Until now, as the club has announced a deal with one for them. As per Stars’ PR:

‘Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has signed goaltender Jake Oettinger to a three-year contract, which will run through the 2024-25 season. The three-year contract is worth $12 million and has an average annual value (AAV) of $4 million.‘’

Oettinger finished the 2021-22 season ranked 12th in the NHL with 30 wins, with a total record of 30-15-1.

The 23-year-old ranked 10th in the NHL with a 2.53 goals-against average and tied for 15th with a .914 save percentage. The young goaltender caught the attention of fans during last season’s playoffs with his incredible seven games series against the Calgary Flames.

He was the 26th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft by the Stars.

Now that the Stars have secured Oettinger, they must turn their attention to star forward Jason Robertson, the other remaining RFA. Like Oettinger, Robertson was a pivotal member of last year’s team as he finished with 41 goals and 38 assists for 79 points. Also 23 years old, these two are the future of the Dallas Stars as they will be the core the team builds around moving forward.
