DALLAS (CP) - The Dallas Stars signed right-winger Jere Lehtinen to a two-year, US$8-million contract, the NHL team announced Saturday.

The new deal will keep Lehtinen under contract with Dallas through the 2008-'09 campaign.

"Jere has been a model of professionalism throughout his career," Stars general manager Doug Armstrong said in a statement. "He is one of the best two-way forwards in the game.

"Consistency and honesty are Jere's trademarks and he brings them to the rink every day. We're very excited to sign him to this contract extension."

Lehtinen has led Dallas in goals scored two of the last three seasons and has captured the Frank J. Selke Trophy as the league's best defensive forward three times, just one of three players to capture that award three or more times (the others are Bob Gainey and Guy Carbonneau).
