The Dallas Stars have made another move in their rebuilding process.

Dallas acquired center Shawn Horcoff from the Edmonton Oilers for defenseman Philip Larsen and a 2016 seventh-round pick in the NHL draft.

Stars general manager Jim Nill confirmed the trade to The Associated Press on Friday, a couple hours before teams could begin signing free agents.

The 34-year-old Horcoff has spent his entire career in Edmonton. He has 162 goals and 447 assists in 796 games since making his debut during the 2000-01 season.

The 23-year-old Larsen has five goals and 19 points in 95 NHL games.

Dallas previously acquired Boston forwards Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley for forward Loui Eriksson on Thursday in a seven-player trade.
