The 6-foot, 180-pound center was signed by the Red Wings prior to the 2020-21 season and recorded 42 points (21-21-42) and 58 penalty minutes in 113 appearances over the last two seasons with Detroit.

Stars acquire Vladislav Namestnikov from Red Wings

The Dallas Stars acquired forward Vladislav Namestnikov from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for a fourth-round pick, per ESPN’s Kevin Weekes. In terms of underrated additions, Namestnikov joining the Stars might rank among the best of the day. The veteran forward appears to be a perfect fit for the Dallas roster, adding some good defensive impact along with a bit of offensive production. In 60 games this season he’s scored 13 goals and 25 points, a total that would actually put him seventh among forwards for the Stars, right about where he’ll likely fit into the lineup. More effective than, say, Alexander Radulov, who has been a frustratingly inconsistent part of the Dallas roster all season, Namestnikov also has the ability to play both center and wing, meaning he could end up moving around quite a bit.
