Former Penguins defenseman Sergei Gonchar, acquired by the Dallas Stars from the Ottawa Senators on Friday for a conditional sixth-round draft pick in this year's draft, agreed to a two-year contract Saturday.

TSN reported that the contract is valued at $10 million.

Gonchar had 15 goals and 76 assists in 186 games over three seasons for the Senators. He led Ottawa defensemen in scoring with 27 points — three goals and 24 assists — this season, the last of a three-year, $16.5 million contract.

The 39-year-old Gonchar, set to become an unrestricted free agent July 5, has 217 goals and 558 assists in 1,117 games over 18 seasons. The Russian spent his first nine seasons with Washington and also played for Boston and the Penguins.

Oilers fire coach

Ralph Krueger was fired Saturday as coach of the Edmonton Oilers after leading the team to a 12th-place finish in the Western Conference in his lone season.

The Oilers have missed the playoffs seven straight years. They were 19-22-7 in the lockout-shortened season.
