FRISCO, Texas -- The Dallas Stars have agreed to terms with forward Jason Williams on a two-way contract for the remainder of the 2010-11 season.

The deal will pay the 30-year-old $500,000 for playing in the NHL and $105,000 for time spent in the minor leagues.

He had totaled four goals and 13 points in 17 games for Connecticut of the American Hockey League before joining the Stars.

"Jason Williams has won a Stanley Cup and brings veteran experience to our club," general manager Joe Nieuwendyk said. "He has the versatility to play any forward position and gives us another right-handed shot."

Williams was a member of Detroit's 2002 Cup winning team and spent the first five-plus years of his career with the Red Wings before being traded to Chicago during the 2006-07 campaign.

He was with the Blackhawks for 1 1/2 seasons before splitting the 2008-09 season with Atlanta and Columbus. Williams returned to Detroit last year and posted six goals and 15 points in 44 games.

The London, Ontario native has collected 91 goals and 220 points in 420 games during his career. He has also scored one goal and dished out a pair of assists in 27 postseason contests.
