Stars sign Fraser, Gaunce to two-way deals

The Dallas Stars took care of some housekeeping on Monday, signing young players Matt Fraser (pictured) and Cameron Gaunce to one-year, two-way contracts.

Fraser, 23, recorded a goal and two assists in 12 regular season games with the Stars and played well in the AHL, earning an All-Star nod for the Texas Stars.

The Stars sent forward Tomas Vincour to the Colorado Avalanche for Gaunce. The 23-year-old defenseman spent this season with the Texas Stars and Lake Erie Monsters in the AHL, but he did play in 11 games at the NHL level with Colorado in 2010-11.

Cameron’s brother Brendan Gaunce was selected in the first round of the 2012 NHL Draft by the Vancouver Canucks.

Report: Bruins’ Bourque, Avs’ Vincour jump to KHL


KHL club AK Bars Kazan has agreed to terms with NHL forwards Chris Bourque and Tomas Vincour, according to Russian news outlet R-Sport.

Bourque, 27, made headlines last season when he made the Bruins roster out of abbreviated training camp, carrying on the legacy set by his father — Ray Bourque — who spent 21 seasons in Boston during his Hall of Fame career.

The younger Bourque appeared in 18 games with the B’s last season, scoring 1G-3A while averaging over 12 minutes per game.

What’s curious about the timing of this announcement is that Bourque is currently traveling as one of Boston’s Black Aces in the Stanley Cup final, and has one season left on the two-year, $1.1 million deal signed in 2012.

That said, this move didn’t come entirely out of left field — Bourque does have a history with the KHL, having spent the 2010-11 season with Atlant Moscow Oblast.

As for Vincour, the 22 year old Czech appeared in 88 games with over three seasons with Dallas — scoring a career-high 10 points in 2011-12 — before being shipped to Colorado at this year’s deadline.

Vincour proceeded to appear in two games for the Avs, but spent the majority of his time with AHL Lake Erie.

Stars and Avalanche swap minor leaguers

Dallas Stars v New York Islanders

The Dallas Stars traded Derek Roy and Jaromir Jagr on Tuesday. Those were among the blockbusters of the day.

The Stars also dealt forward Tomas Vincour to the Colorado Avalanche for defenseman Cameron Gaunce. The Stars then assigned Gaunce to the Texas Stars in the American Hockey League, as per a statement on the NHL team’s website.

Vincour has played in 86 career NHL games with Dallas, scoring seven times and adding a total of 15 points over a span of three seasons. Gaunce, 23, has played in 11 career NHL games.

As a member in the Avalanche farm system, Gaunce had nine goals and 60 and 272 penalty minutes in 197 games with the Lake Erie Monsters in the AHL.

Jamie Benn skips Stars’ practice with wrist injury

Jamie Benn

In an unexpected twist, Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn sat out Monday’s practice, but it wasn’t because of an injury related to Martin Hanzal’s hit (which knocked him out of Saturday’s 2-1 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes).

At least that’s what he told the Dallas Morning News. Instead, he decided to get treatment on a wrist injury he suffered earlier in that game.

He might even be able to play in Tuesday’s game against the Nashville Predators.

“The wrist was a whole separate play, it had nothing to do with the hit,” Benn said. “The wrist is a little sore today. I took the day off, got a little treatment done. I’ll skate tomorrow and see how it feels.”

In other promising news for tomorrow’s contest, Ray Whitney could suit up as well after missing 16 games with a foot injury. He still needs to be cleared by team doctors (news of that might surface later tonight).

While it might not happen that soon, it sounds like the Stars are as close to full strength as they’ve been all season long.

One more Stars bit: the team recalled forward Tomas Vincour in exchange for winger Matt Fraser on Monday.
