Jason Demers recorded a goal for the Stars in their 4-3 win over the Blues on Saturday night.

Demers has four of his seven points in 13 games with the Stars, so he has done just what general manager Jim Nill hoped for when he traded for him. The goal was his first of the season, so he’s not much of a fantasy option at this point. Trevor Daley, Ryan Garbutt and Travis Moen also scored for Dallas.

Jason Demers was very good in his debut with the Dallas Stars on Saturday.

Demers scored a goal, added three shots and played 25:32 in the game. He also dished out a huge hit on Kings' forward Jarret Stoll. Demers was also happy about the reception he got from the Stars' fans. "I’ve always hated to play in this building, so it’s fun to be on their side now. You couldn’t ask for any better reception," said Demers.

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.

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.

Jason Demers returned to action against Columbus Friday night.

He had missed the Sharks' last three games with a groin muscle pull. Demers looked good in San Jose's 3-2 win Friday as he registered an assist and took three shots on goal in 20:46 of ice time. The Sharks don't play again until after the Olympic break so you have plenty of time to activate him.

Jason Demers (groin) will probably return on Friday.

Demers has missed three straight games. He seemed confident that he would play, but Sharks coach Todd McLellan wouldn't commit to that.
