Sharp a Star
The Chicago Blackhawks sent three-time Stanley Cup champion Patrick Sharp and defensive prospect Stephen Jones to the Dallas Stars for veteran defenceman Trevor Daley and forward Ryan Garbutt. The deal announced Friday night gives the Stars a veteran forward to go with high-scoring young stars Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn. The Blackhawks add a solid two-way player to their blueline in Daley, who had a career-high 16 goals last season. The 33-year-old Sharp scored 43 points (16 goals, 27 assists) in 68 games for the Blackhawks, who beat Tampa Bay in seven games in June for the third Stanley Cup title in six seasons. The 31-year-old Daley spent his first 11 seasons with the Stars.
