"We’re very pleased that we were able to sign Alex to this extension," said Stars owner Tom Gaglardi. "We are committed to building a winner here in Dallas and that starts with re-signing your key players and maintaining a solid foundation for your roster."

Added Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk, "Alex Goligoski is one of our core players and we are very pleased to get him under contract during the prime of his career. Alex is a character person and one of the anchors of our blue-line. He’s a big part of our hockey club."

Goligoski is now under contract until the 2016 season, with second highest cap hit on the team behind Trevor Daley.
