The Dallas Stars are getting after it.

Shortly after acquiring Jason Spezza via trade, Dallas signed his former Ottawa running mate Ales Hemsky to a three-year, $12 million deal, per TSN.

Acquired from Edmonton at last year’s deadline, Hemsky showed extremely well as a Senator by establishing chemistry on a line with Spezza and Milan Michalek. The Czech winger had 17 points in 20 games in Ottawa and will no doubt be pleased to reunite with Spezza in Dallas, a team that’s shaping up to be a formidable offensive force.

Prior to landing Spezza and Hemsky, the Stars already boasted two of the NHL’s best scorers -- Tyler Seguin, who finished fourth with 84 points and Jamie Benn, who finished 10th with 79.
