The Dallas Stars have signed defenseman Julius Honka to a one-year, two-way contract, the team announced Friday.

Honka posted 15 points in 46 games in Finland last season. The 24-year-old went overseas after being unable to work out a deal as a restricted free agent with the Stars.

Dallas drafted Honka 14th overall in 2014, but he's only played in 87 NHL games. He's spent the majority of his career in the AHL or as a healthy scratch with the big club.

Honka previously requested a trade out of Dallas but nothing ever materialized.
