Jason Demers will make his Stars' debut Saturday night against Los Angeles.

He was traded to Dallas from San Jose on Friday and will be paired with Trevor Daley in the second defensemen unit. Demers will not immediately get power-play ice time, but it is almost certain he will iine up on the second unit at some point.

The San Jose Sharks have traded Jason Demers and a 2016 third-round pick to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Brendan Dillon.

Demers has three assists in 20 games this season, which is a huge step down from his 34-point 2013-14 campaign. This is a chance for Demers to get a fresh start, so he'll be worth keeping an eye on over the Stars' next few games.
Nov 21 - 3:30 PM

The San Jose Sharks will scratch defenseman Jason Demers against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday, instead rolling with Scott Hannan.

Hannan is long beyond the point of being particularly useful in fantasy, so the most interesting facet is Demers sitting. The 26-year-old is coming off of a 34-point season in 2013-14 and has two assists in four games so far.

Jason Demers has signed a two-year, $6.8 million contract extension with the San Jose Sharks.

With that, the Sharks and Demers have successfully avoided arbitration ahead of their July 22 hearing date. He's coming off of a breakout season where he scored five goals and 34 points in 75 games. The fact that it's a two-year deal makes a lot of sense for San Jose as it will give Demers a chance to prove that he's capable of continuing to perform at that level before they potentially make a long-term commitment.

Jason Demers has received his arbitration hearing date.
