The 37-year-old Zubov, a two-time Stanley Cup winner, has played
11 of his 15 NHL seasons with the Stars.

"This is the place that my family and I love, and I want to
finish my career here," Zubov said.

Zubov is the franchise leader among defensemen in goals (107),
assists (403) and points (510).

Zubov won Stanley Cups with the New York Rangers in 1994 and the
Stars in '99.

"He is a valuable piece to our hockey club and has been
consistently one of the best in the NHL at his position," Stars
general manager Doug Armstrong said.
