The Dallas Stars have signed Tyler Seguin to an eight-year extension with an average annual value of $9.85 million.

"Emotional. It was a process, a learning process this summer. Learning the whole business side of negotiations,'' Seguin said. "At the end of the day, I knew where I wanted to be. I knew where home was. That was here in Dallas.''

The 26-year-old had a career-high 40 goals to go with 38 assists last season. The five-time All-Star has finished in the top 10 in goals four times in his career.
