The Dallas Stars and Pittsburgh Penguins have swapped veteran defencemen, with the Stars dealing Philippe Boucher to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Darryl Sydor.

In the final year of a contract that pays him $2.5-million this season, Boucher is a 35-year-old who has three points and a minus-4 rating in 16 games with the Stars this season.  He has 91 goals and 294 points in 723 career games.

''We thank Philippe Boucher for everything he's done for the Dallas Stars organization the last few years, and we wish him the best with the Penguins,'' Stars co-general manager Les Jackson said in a release.

Sydor, 36, has seen limited duty with the Penguins this year, tallying one goal and one assist with a plus-5 rating, in eight games.

''Darryl is a proven veteran defenceman who brings a great deal of character and leadership abilities to our group,'' said Jackson. ''He is obviously a player we are very familiar with and we are excited to welcome him back to the Stars.''

Like Boucher, Sydor is in the final year of his contract, which pays $2.5-million.  Sydor had a no-trade clause that he needed to waive in order for the deal to go through.

Sydor has 486 points career points in 1179 games, including stints with the Stars from 1996 to 2003 as well as the 2006-2007 season.
