In addition to qualifying offers, Dallas did some more business today, signing Jerad Rosburg to a one-year, two-way deal. The defenseman missed much of the 2022-23 campaign with a shoulder injury. It was originally deemed season-ending, but Texas lasted long enough in the postseason that Rosburg took warmups in Game 5 against Milwaukee.

This is great news for Rosburg, who could have easily been left without a contract and not much tape from the season after his injury. Dallas and Texas got to see him work through significant injury to get himself back to shape ahead of schedule.

Other major prospect UFAs remain for Texas, however. Ben Gleason and Ryan Shea on defense and Riley Tufte and Rhett Gardner at forward are chief among them.

Here's the release:
Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has signed defenseman Jerad Rosburg to a one-year two-way contract extension, which will run through the 2023-24 season. 

In the 2022-23 season, Rosburg, 27, recorded three points (0-3—3) in 12 games for the Texas Stars, Dallas’ development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL), before missing the rest of the season due to injury. He has played parts of four seasons with Texas, earning 26 points (6-20—26) in 115 games, including a career-high 14 points (4-10—14) in in 65 games in 2021-22. He added two games in the Calder Cup Playoffs in 2022, recording three shots on goal and plus-1 rating.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound native of Clarksville, Maryland was originally undrafted and signed with Dallas as a Free Agent on March 9, 2020.
