Adam Cracknell had a goal and an assist in the Stars' home opener versus Anaheim on Thursday night.

He picked up an assist on Antoine Roussel's game winner early in the third period and scored an insurance marker to give Dallas a 4-2 lead. Cracknell finished with just under 10 minutes of ice time, but he made the most of his shifts in the final frame.

Adam Cracknell will probably start the season with Dallas.

He may have started the year in the AHL, but roster spots became available because of Valeri Nichushkin's departure to Russia and knee injuries to Mattias Janmark and Cody Eakin. Cracknell has done well defensively and he has played physically during the preseason. He has been playing some center for the Stars, but can also skate on the wing.
Oct 3 - 11:12 AM

The Dallas Stars have signed Adam Cracknell to a one-year, two-way deal.

The terms of the deal were not disclosed. The 30-year-old had five goals and 10 points in 52 games with the Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks in 2015-16. Cracknell will have an opportunity to earn a regular role with the Stars in training camp, but he'll likely spend at least a portion of the year in the AHL.
Jul 3 - 2:53 PM

Adam Cracknell, Anton Lander, and Luke Gazdic will be scratched Saturday against the Canucks.

Unfortunately, there isn't a lick of value between them. Which is especially disappointing from Lander as it appears he cannot translate his skills to the game's highest level.
Apr 9 - 7:50 PM

Adam Cracknell will be scratched against Arizona on Tuesday night.

Through six games with the Oilers, the veteran forward has no points with four PIMs and 20 hits. Unfortunately, he just doesn't boast any fantasy value.

Feb 29 - 12:11 PM

The Vancouver Canucks waived Adam Cracknell on Sunday afternoon.

Through 43 games this season the 30-year-old career tweener has posted five goals, 10 points, and 93 hits while averaging 12:28 of ice time per night. From here, Cracknell can be sent to the AHL, cut, traded, or kept with the team. But, for now, his league minimum $575K salary is coming off the books.
Feb 28 - 12:17 PM

Adam Cracknell and Yannick Weber will be scratched from Thursday's match with Ottawa.

Adam Cracknell ended his personal 28 game goal drought during Friday's 5-2 loss to Calgary.

The goal gives Cracknell four on the season and 10 for his career across 124 career games. The 30-year-old winger is clearly not known for his scoring prowess.

Feb 10 - 5:50 PM

Adam Cracknell and Andrey Pedan will both be scratched against Carolina on Friday night.

The noted scorer Cracknell has posted three goals and eight points in 36 games this season. Okay, perhaps that's what he's known for, but he does have 84 hits against just six PIMs which is really impressive. And also potentially valuable for any pool that rewards hits.
Jan 15 - 6:48 PM

Adam Cracknell had an assist in a 5-4 shootout loss to Florida.

Cracknell ended a five-game point drought. He has three goals and four assists in 29 contests in 2015-16.
