Jamie Langenbrunner update
By Mark Stepneski
It appears Dallas Stars forward Jamie Langenbrunner will hit the free agent market on July 1, but that doesn’t mean re-signing with Dallas is out of the question.
Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk has had discussions with Langenbrunner and said he would he like to keep the 35-year-old right wing if the price is right.
Langenbrunner’s agent Steve Bartlett said it's likely his client will see what is out there when the market opens, but that doesn’t mean the Stars will be off the list.
“It looks likely that we will explore options on July 1, but Dallas is certainly one of those options,” Bartlett said in an email to ESPNDallas.com on Wednesday evening.
Langenbrunner, acquired from New Jersey in a trade in January, made $2.8 million last season.
