Brian Sutherby to get contract extension

Per Mike Heika:

The Stars are expected to announce today that they have signed center Brian Sutherby to a two-year contract extension for around $1.625 million total.

Sutherby was scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent after this season, so good move for both sides in locking up a player who has become an important part of the Dallas Stars future. He's a hard working, physical and versatile forward who has also shown a fair amount of offensive skill. He has shown to be able to create chemistry with whomever is on his line and his energetic style is important on a team that struggles at times with consistent effort.

It will be interesting to see where he fits in once the various injured players return. Before Brad Richards was hurt he and Sutherby had started to enjoy success together on the same line.

This could also spell the eventual departure of other veteran UFA's, most notably Joel Lundqvist.
