Remi Elie was qualified by Dallas a few weeks back and has now agreed to terms on a one-way contract at $735,000 for the coming season. The contract structure makes it unlikely he will play with the Texas Stars again.

Here's the release:
Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has signed left wing Remi Elie to a one-year, $735,000 contract.

Elie, 23, skated in 72 regular-season games for Dallas during the 2017-18 season, posting career-highs in points (6-8=14), goals (6), assists (8) and games played (72). He was tied for fifth among Stars forwards and shared seventh among all team skaters with 101 hits. The forward also appeared in four regular-season games for the Texas Stars (AHL), potting one goal (1-0=1). During the 2017-18 postseason, Elie tallied nine points (2-7=9) in 19 Calder Cup Playoff games, helping Texas reach the Calder Cup Final against the Toronto Marlies.

The forward has appeared in 90 career NHL games, all with Dallas, and has registered 21 points (7-14=21) with 26 penalty minutes. He has skated in 121 AHL contests over three seasons, posting 46 points (16-30=46) with 94 penalty minutes. In 23 career Calder Cup Playoff games, Elie has nine points (2-7=9) and 10 penalty minutes.

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound native of Cornwall, Ontario was originally selected by Dallas in the second round (40th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft.
