Here's the press release:

Frisco, TX - The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has signed forward Francis Wathier (wa-tee-ayh) to a two-year, two-way contract, for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons.

The 6-foot-4, 225-pound forward skated in 75 games for the Texas Stars (AHL) in 2011-12, earning 18 goals, 24 assists and 42 points, with 94 penalty minutes. His assist and point totals were both career bests at the AHL level, and among Texas team leaders, he placed fourth in goals, assists, points and PIM.

The native of St. Isidore, Ont., skated in one game for Dallas last season, going scoreless. He has appeared in nine career NHL games with the Stars, recording five penalty minutes and making his NHL debut on Oct. 22, 2009.

Wathier, 27, was Dallas' sixth-round selection (185th overall) in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. He was a part of the Idaho Steelheads ECHL Kelly Cup championship club in 2007, and as a member of the Iowa Stars in 2007-08, was named Iowa's American Specialty Man of the Year for his outstanding contributions to the Des Moines community.
