Defenseman Aaron Rome signed a three-year, $4.5 million contract with the Dallas Stars on Sunday. Rome, 28, played in 43 games for the Vancouver Canucks last season and posted career highs of four goals and six assists. “Aaron is a physical defensive defenseman who adds size and grit to our blue line,” Stars general manger Nieuwendyk said. “He competes at a very high level and helps make our team harder to play against.” Before spending the past three seasons with the Canucks, Rome played for Anaheim and Columbus. His career experience includes 18 playoff appearances.
