Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has signed forward Nicholas Caamano to a three-year entry level contract beginning in the 2017-18 season. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.


Caamano, 18, split the season between the Texas Stars, Dallas' top development affiliate in the American Hockey League, and the Flint Firebirds of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). Caamano recorded 64 points (35-39=64) in 67 OHL games with Flint in 2016-17. The forward finished the season tied for third in the OHL with four shorthanded goals and shared fifth in the League with 14 power play goals, leading Flint in both categories. Caamano was also tied for 14th in the OHL and ranked second on the team with 35 goals this season, while his 64 points ranks third on Flint. Caamano has also appeared in one game with Texas, registering one assist (0-1=1) and a +1 plus/minus rating in his professional debut.

Caamano has spent three seasons in the OHL with Plymouth and Flint. Over his OHL career, he has recorded 110 points (58-52=110), 132 penalty minutes 18 power play goals and five game-winning goals in 195 career games. The forward has also tallied three points (0-3=3) in five career postseason contests, all of which game this past season.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound native of Ancaster, Ont. was originally selected by Dallas in the fifth round (146th overall) of the 2016 NHL Draft.
