It's been mentioned in a different thread, but he's been past over on their team as well. He's serving in the 7th D role for them.

Reaction to this trade was definitely mixed, but I think the people shocked Dallas only received a 3rd round pick are eventually going to realize they probably made out like bandits.

Fistric is a fun guy to watch when he's locked in on a guy, but his type of play is becoming a thing of the past. Physicality will never leave the game, and sure he provides that. The entire league though, not just Dallas, is more concerned about mobility and puck movement. His lack of ability in those two areas will likely relegate him to a 3rd pair/7th D role his entire career.
