Dallas Stars add Matt Duchene as NHL free agency opens up

The Dallas Stars made a few signings Saturday as they look to build a Stanley Cup championship team.

Duchene brings a winning mentality to his new team.

The 32-year-old has won an Olympic gold medal and collected more than 700 points in the NHL.

But in 14 seasons, the two-time All-Star has never played for a Stanley Cup.

He believes Dallas gives him the best chance to do that.

"I used to watch the Stanley Cup Final every year and I have not watched it the last few years because I can't anymore. It drives me nuts. Jealousy is not a good thing to feel but I feel so jealous watching those guys lift it at the end. And I know everybody feels that way. So, I hope that, you know, kinda God's plan for me being here is to hopefully have a run at that and hopefully lift it," he said.

Duchene and his Stars teammates take the ice for training camp in September.
