FRISCO, Tex. -- The Dallas Stars and Fabian Brunnstrom have agreed to terms on a one-year contract that will pay the left wing $675,000 for the upcoming 2010-11 season.

The deal was struck Friday morning before a scheduled arbitration hearing.

"We're pleased that we were able to come to an agreement with Fabian," said general manager Joe Nieuwendyk. "We are looking forward to having him come to training camp in September and battle for a spot on our roster."

The 25-year-old Brunnstrom notched a pair of goals and added nine assists in 44 games last season.

He had tallied 17 goals and 12 assists as a rookie with the Stars in 2008-09 after signing as a free agent in May 2008.
