The 31-year-old Stillman was second among scorers for the Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning during the 2003-04 season. He was seventh in the NHL with 80 points in 81 games and third with 55 assists.
"Cory has been a consistent offensive player throughout his NHL career," general manager Jim Rutherford said. "He was a key member of Tampa Bay's power play, and we will look for him to do the same for our team."
