ST. LOUIS — Another Stanley Cup champion will wear the Blue Note again next season—and for at least three seasons after that.
Forward Oskar Sundqvist signed a four-year contract extension with the St. Louis Blues, the team announced Sunday evening. The contract has an annual average value of $2.75 million. Sundqvist became a restricted free agent on July 1.
Sundqvist’s had one of his best seasons yet during the Blues’ championship year. He set career highs in goals (14), assists (17) and points (31). In the postseason, he got four goals and five assists.
The Blues already have locked down several other players who were in danger of leaving St. Louis, including Jordan Binnington, Robby Fabbri, Zach Sanford, Sammy Blais and Carl Gunnarsson. The team also locked down coach Craig Berube for three years.
Still on the brink of possibly leaving is our hometown hero Pat Maroon. During his day with the Stanley Cup Saturday, Maroon said he's still open to staying in St. Louis.
