The St. Louis Blues signed 24 year old forward David Perron to a new four-year contract. Blues GM Doug Armstrong explained the club liked the year that Perron had and feel he’s healthy enough for the team to move forward. Terms of the deal were not announced, but NHL.com is reporting the deal is worth $15.25 million.
Perron scored 21 goals and added 21 assists in 57 games. He also had a goal and four assists during the Blues nine playoff games. He missed the first 25 games of the season with concussion issues, but rallied to finish the regular season second in goals and fifth on the Blues in points and assists. “I love the city of St. Louis and I’m thrilled to play in front of these awesome fans for another four years,” said Perron. “We had an excellent regular season but we all feel this team has so much more to accomplish.”
