The Dallas Stars have announced that right wing Jonathan Cheechoo will attend the team's training camp on a tryout basis.

"We're pleased that Jonathan has accepted our invitation to come to our training camp," Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk said in a team release. "He has shown the ability to be an effective scorer in this league. He's a competitor and we're going to give him an opportunity."

Cheechoo, 30, played 61 games with Ottawa last season, registering 14 points (5 goals, 9 assists).

Cheechoo, a right shot, was originally drafted by San Jose (2nd round/29th overall) in 1998. He’s picked up 305 points (170 goals, 135 assists) in 501 career NHL games.

His best season came in 2005-06 when he won the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the NHL’s top goal scorer, tallying 56 for the Sharks.
