Stars Acquire Shawn Horcoff from Oilers for Philip Larsen

Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has acquired center Shawn Horcoff from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for defenseman Philip Larsen and a seventh round selection in the 2016 NHL Draft.

Horcoff, 34, posted 12 points (7G-5A=12P) in 31 games for Edmonton during 2012-13 regular season. His +8 plus/minus rating was tied for first on the team and he averaged 2:29 shorthanded time on ice per game for the ninth-ranked Edmonton penalty kill unit.

A 12-year NHL veteran, Horcoff has spent his entire career in Edmonton posting 447 points (162G-285A=447P) in 796 career regular season games. Named the 13th team captain in Oilers history on Oct. 6, 2010, he departs Edmonton having registered the ninth-most goals and points and 11th most assists in franchise history. In 2007-08, he was named to the NHL All-Star Game played in Atlanta.

Horcoff has appeared in 35 career postseason games registering 23 points (10G-13A=23P). He participated in the 2006 Stanley Cup Final, falling to Carolina in seven games, finishing second on the team with 19 points (7G-12A=19P) in 24 games during that postseason.

“Shawn is a proven leader in this League and helps solidify our group at center,” stated Nill. “He’s a hard-working, two-way player that can contribute in all situations and our young players will be able to learn from his work ethic and example.”

Horcoff has represented Team Canada at three World Championships (2003, 2004, 2009), having won gold in both 2003 and 2004.

The six-foot-one, 208-pound native of Trail, British Columbia was originally selected by Edmonton in the fourth round (99th overall) of the 1998 NHL Draft.

Larsen, 23, registered 19 points (5G-14A=19P) in 95 regular season games over the course of four seasons with Dallas. The six-foot, 190-pound native of Esbjerg, Denmark was originally selected by Dallas in the fifth round (149th overall) of the 2008 NHL Draft.

Hope it's more to the deal. Horcoff is way over paid.

He would have been their second compliance buyout (behind Belanger) anyways - getting ANYTHING is great.

So is Taylor Hall the new captain? He was balls out all year last year. He's pretty young though.

My guess is that they'd give it to Smid.

I wonder about Nick Schultz or Ryan Smyth (for 1 year).

Edmonton was able to dump Horcoff but Toronto couldn't find any takers for Grabovski? WTF???

Horcoff is a decent player and should help the Stars in a depth role but the Oilers did good to actually get something for him.

Shawn Horcoff is a great third line centre... He really is... character guy.

The problem is he's paid like a first line centre, when in fact he's a really good third line centre.

Mctavish has been doing a bang up job so far in the offseason. Drafted sandpaper,good prospects on the back end, and is getting rid of some junk salary cap in Horcoft and Belanger. I can see the Oilers going somewhere with this guy as GM.

I don't understand the Stars. You want to rebuild and then you trade away your prospects? They traded J.Morrow to Boston now Larsen to Edmonton. Who's next?
