Stars sign RW Michael Ryder

The Dallas Stars have signed right wing Michael Ryder, who won a Stanley Cup with the Boston Bruins last season. It's a two-year deal worth $7 million.

Ryder, 31, had 18 goals and 23 assists in 79 games in 2010-11. He had 17 points (8 goals, 9 assists) in 25 playoff games.

Ryder, a right shot, has scored 30 goals twice in his NHL career and played with Stars center Mike Ribeiro in Montreal.

More to come.
