“I’m very excited about that, especially signing with a team like Dallas,” Garbutt said from his home in Winnipeg, Manitoba. “Obviously, it’s what I’ve been striving for my whole life, and I want to take advantage of the opportunity I’ve been given.”

“It’s definitely exciting, but I know have a lot of work ahead of me. It’s definitely a step in the right direction. It doesn’t necessarily mean I’m going to play in the NHL next year. I’m going to have to work my way up there.”

But Garbutt said he was unsure of Winnipeg’s interest in keeping him, and Dallas stood out from a handful of teams that pursued him.

“Dallas just seemed to be the place I wanted to go and the place that would be a good fit for me,” Garbutt said. “I loved the experience playing in Corpus, so it made me want to go back to (Texas).”
