While Dallas saw one of their restricted free agents head overseas this morning, they’ve taken care of another one as the Stars announced the re-signing of defenseman Jerad Rosburg to a two-year, two-way contract. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 25-year-old signed with Dallas as an undrafted free agent back in March of 2020 after four seasons at Michigan State. Rosburg spent last season with AHL Texas, notching a goal and six assists in 36 games along with a team-high 34 PIMS. He was never a big offensive threat at the college level either with his career-best in points with the Spartans being 17 so the low output in his freshman professional season doesn’t come as much of a surprise.
Despite his age, Rosburg is actually waiver-exempt for one more season so Dallas will be able to send him back to Texas in the fall where he can continue to develop. This deal will take him to UFA eligibility in the summer of 2023 so if he isn’t able to establish himself with Dallas by then, he’ll have an opportunity to try to catch on elsewhere at that time.
The Stars now have just one restricted free agent remaining in AHL blueliner Joseph Cecconi who elected not to file for salary arbitration by yesterday’s deadline.
