The talk surrounding big center Martin Hanzal died down a little after he was eventually traded to the Minnesota Wild after months of speculation regarding his future, but that doesn't mean there wasn't plenty of demand for him as a free agent.
Despite fielding offers from multiple teams it now appears that Hanzal has made his choice. According to TSN insider Bob McKenzie Hanzal has come to terms on three-year deal with the Dallas Stars who are looking to bounce back after a rough season.
McKenzie is also reporting that Hanzal's deal will carry an average annual value of $4.75 million, a decent price tag for arguably one of the premier free agent centers available on the market this summer.
In his 71 games last season Hanzal put up 20 goals and 19 assists for 39 total points split between both the Arizona Coyotes and Minnesota Wild.
