First of all, goalie Philippe Desrosiers was signed to a one-year, two-way deal. Desrosiers is coming off his entry level contract and was a restricted free agent. Dallas did qualify the young goalie, but he spent the entire year in the ECHL. Desrosiers will have to truly up his game this coming year as Colton Point is coming out of college and looks to already be ahead of him on the depth chart. Note that Desrosiers does have the option to refuse assignment to the ECHL now that he is not on an entry level contract.
Second, Jason Dickinson was signed to a one-year deal. There was no doubt that Dickinson would be signed, but the question was around the 'wayness' of the deal. The contract is a one-way, which means that he is unlikely to return to the Dallas Stars. Effectively, he has graduated to the NHL.
Third, Adam Mascherin has been inked to a three-year entry-level deal. He was originally drafted by the Panthers in 2016 but did not sign and reentered the 2018 draft. Dallas picked him up in the 4th round. Given that he is an older pick, he is immediately eligible for play in the AHL.
Finally, former Texas Star Devin Shore was also re-signed by Dallas on a two-year, one-way deal.
