The Dallas Stars claimed long-time project, Dustin Jeffrey off waivers today. Jeffrey has scored 15 goals and 13 assists as a member of the Penguins in 100 NHL games. This season, Jeffrey has one point (an assist) in 10 games.
Jeffrey made his NHL debut with the Penguins on December 26, 2008. He recorded his first NHL point on December 30 and his first goal the next game on January 1, 2009.
Jeffrey’s career hasn’t been the same since injuring his knee in an on-ice incident with Jeff Carter in a game with the Philadelphia Flyers. The injury kept Jeffrey out for the remainder of the 2011 season.
