Bachman, Fistric File for Arbitration

On Thursday evening, Dallas Stars goaltender Richard Bachman and defenseman Mark Fistric filed for salary arbitration prior to the 5 p.m., deadline on July 5.

This means that if the player and organization are unable to come to an agreement on a new deal, a hearing will occur between the team, the player and a third party salary arbitrator at some point between the dates of July 20 and August 4 to determine a new salary for the 2012-13 season.

Bachman valiantly stepped into the spotlight after Kari Lehtonen fell to an injury halfway through the year.

Vokoun all but assured

Vokoun All But Assured to be in an Avs Uni Next Year
