Jamie Oleksiak will make his regular season debut in Saturday's game against Florida.

The 22-year-old was Dallas' first round pick, 14th overall, in 2011. He's been a healthy scratch in each regular season game this year, but that will change tonight. Don't expect him to put up a ton of points.

Jamie Oleksiak is expected to start the regular season with Dallas.

However, it will probably be as an extra defender. Oleksiak has to clear waivers to be sent down and the Stars won't risk losing him for nothing. The 6-foot-7, 250-pounder has played in 59 NHL games over the past three seasons, including 36 last year.

Jamie Oleksiak's one-year deal with Dallas is worth $875,000.

It's a one-way contract, so he'll earn that amount even if he gets sent to the AHL. He had a goal and seven points in 36 games with Dallas last season. "Jamie wants to come in and be one of the top seven defensemen, and if he does that, he knows he has the opportunity for more growth contract-wise," Stars GM Jim Nill said.

The Dallas Stars are still trying to lock up defenseman Jamie Oleksiak.

Oleksiak was the Stars first round pick (14th overall) in 2011. The 22-year-old amassed a goal and eight points in 36 games this season. The 6'7, 250 pounder hasn't found a permanent home in the NHL yet, but he should have no problem doing so in the near future. His offensive upside may be limited, but he has the opportunity to develop into a very effective blueliner.
