Scarsella enjoyed a productive first season in the Elite League, scoring 31 goals with 43 assists.
Stars’ boss Marc LeFebvre said: “Vinny will add an extra dynamic to our roster – he is excellent in transition and has scored goals for every hockey club he has played for.
“I have every confidence that he will quickly become a fans favourite in Dundee. We just got a little faster.”
Scarsella added “I’m very excited to join the Stars organisation.
“I feel like the coaches and owners are committed to putting together a winning team and I know this is a great fit for me.
“I cannot wait to arrive in August.”
