Remi Elie Signs Entry Level Deal With Dallas Stars


After being cut by the Dallas Stars just 5 days ago, the Stars decided it was time to give their 2nd round pick from 2013, Remi Elie, an entry-level contract. On Sunday the Stars signed Remi Elie to his three year entry-level deal.

The Stars drafted Elie in the second round, 40th overall, of the 2013 NHL draft but sent him back to junior last season. He split the year between the Belleville Bulls and the London Knights in the OHL where he scored 29 goals for 68 points between the two teams.

After joining the Bulls, Elie led the team in scoring with 28 goals and 65 points in 61 games.

The Stars returned him to the OHL earlier in the week and Elie immediately answered with a goal and an assist in a 6-0 Bulls win. Prior to the draft he had a rough rookie season with the Knights notching on 17 points but has managed to find a new home with the Bulls post draft.

The six-foot-one, 205-pound left winger was instrumental in the Dallas Stars Traverse City run. He looked solid during his short stay with the Stars in training camp, skating well, shooting hard and checking opponents. He’s not quite ready for NHL play but is expected to be among the OHL’s elite this upcoming season.

After signing his entry-level deal and impressing in Stars camp, the bar for Remi Elie has been set quite high ahead of this upcoming OHL season. His team and coach expect him to be among the top 10 OHL scorers and are already predicting a break-out season for the 19 year-old forward.

The Bulls are looking for a turnaround season and a trip back into the postseason. A fair bit of that will fall squarely on the shoulders of the Dallas Stars latest signing.
