Dallas Stars restricted free agent Julius Honka signed with Finland's JYP Jyväskylä on Thursday, with an opt-out clause until Dec. 1.

JYP said Honka will make his Liiga debut on Friday. Dec. 1 is the deadline for RFAs to sign a contract in the NHL to play this season.

Stars general manager Jim Nill said last month that Honka had requested a trade from the team after appearing in 29 games with the team last season.
