    The Dallas Stars have reached a four-year, $18.4 million contract extension with defenseman Alex Goligoski.

    The agreement was announced Monday. Goligoski's current deal expires this summer.

    “We’re very pleased that we were able to sign Alex to this extension,” said Stars owner Tom Gaglardi. “We are committed to building a winner here in Dallas and that starts with re-signing your key players and maintaining a solid foundation for your roster.”

    Added Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk, “Alex Goligoski is one of our core players and we are very pleased to get him under contract during the prime of his career. Alex is a character person and one of the anchors of our blue-line. He’s a big part of our hockey club.”

    The 26-year-old Goligoski is in his fourth NHL season and his second with the Stars.

    Goligoski in November broke his thumb in a 3-1 loss at Pittsburgh, his former team.
