    The Dallas Stars have signed top draft pick Valeri Nichushkin to a three-year entry-level contract.

    The 18-year-old Russian winger was the 10th overall pick in the draft last weekend. He played 18 regular-season games and 25 playoff games last season for the KHL club in Chelyabinsk, his hometown.

    Nichushkin had six goals and three assists in the playoffs and was the KHL's top rookie.

    Terms of the deal announced Saturday weren't released.
