Dallas Stars forward Mike Modano confirmed Monday he is coming back next season, his 20th in the NHL.

Modano, who turns 39 on June 7, had 15 goals and 31 assists for 46 points in 80 games this season.

But the Livonia, Mich., native began considering retirement after Dallas failed to make the playoffs.
