After avoiding arbitration with Richard Bachman, signing the goaltender to a one-year, one-way contract earlier this week, the Stars avoided arbitration with one of their final Restricted Free Agents by signing defenseman Mark Fistric to a one-year contract worth $1.475 million.

Fistric, the Stars 1st round draft pick in 2004, was coming off a three-year contract worth $3 million and had earned $1.25 million last season. Fistric appeared in 60 games for the Stars last season but found himself in a reduced role, putting up just two assists and two points total on the season -- and the least penalty minutes in a season in his career.
