(CP) - Brenden Morrow, whose consistent scoring and tenacious checking has made him one of the NHL's best two-way forwards, has landed a US$24.6-million, six-year contract to remain one of the Dallas Stars' core players.

"I wanted to stay in Dallas all along and now I can concentrate completely on the ice for this upcoming season," said the 27-year-old native of Carlyle, Sask. "I couldn't be happier and am extremely excited about continuing my career with the Stars for many years."

Morrow's extension will pay the 27-year-old left-winger $4.1 million a year beginning in 2007-2008. He's due $2.2 million this season under the contract he signed previously.

"Signing Brenden to a long-term extension was a top priority for this hockey club," GM Doug Armstrong said in making the announcement Thursday. "We consider him a cornerstone player and an integral part of our team.

"Brenden is one of our main leaders and sets the tone for the club with his consistent play. He brings a lot of energy and tenacity to the lineup each night and the Dallas Stars are extremely proud to have him here over the next seven seasons."

And the big contracts keep on coming. :dunno: Not that morrow isn't a good player of course, just that he can be undisciplined. Last season's game #3 vs. Colorado comes to mind. That hurt to watch, and I'm not even a Stars fan. :(

Still though, and good player. Not sure about 4.1M a year yet, but we'll see how he does.

Morrow is now the captain of the team. He is better than Modano at leading his team. He is MUCH more vocal and outspoken.
