NHL and Hockey Rumors for April 22, 2009

The Dallas Stars have signed defenseman Phillip Larsen to a three-year, entry-level contract. Larsen was the Stars' fifth round pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

The Minnesota Wild have re-signed defenseman John Scott to a one-year contract.

The Boston Bruins have signed free agent goalie Matt Dalton to a two-year contract. Dalton has played the last two seasons with Bemidji State University of the NCAA. Source

Brochu's European rumor roundup:

Former NHL goalie Dominik Hasek has come out of retirement to play for his hometown team, HC Moeller Pardubice in the Czech Republic. "A year ago I said goodbye to the NHL but not to hockey," Hasek said. "After a year when I was engaged in other activities I felt like returning." Hasek also has an option year after next year. Brochu's take: There had been rumors that he would sign with a KHL team in Russia, but I guess the economic situation put a damper on that. Hasek also stated he would love to play in the Olympics, when he will be nearly 45 years old. Source
