The Dallas Stars announced that they signed Travis Morin to a two-year contract extension on Friday. As usual, they didn’t provide terms for the deal.
The 31-year-old serves as a decent emergency injury option at the NHL level, even if he’s easily been most effective with the Texas Stars in the AHL.
He topped AHL scorers in 2013-14 with 88 points in 66 games. Morin was also effective in the AHL playoffs, collecting nine goals and 13 points for 22 points in 21 postseason contests.
That hasn’t really translated to the NHL level, at least not yet.
In small snippets during three seasons, Morin has one assist in 12 NHL games, including five pointless games with Dallas in 2014-15.
Regardless, he provides the organization with some depth and useful experience at the AHL level, so it makes sense that they’re keeping him around.
