Blues star Schenn signs eight-year contract extension

October 5 2019 6:19 AM

St Louis Blues star Brayden Schenn has signed an eight-year contract extension worth $52million with the Stanley Cup champions.

Schenn, who would have become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, will remain in St Louis through the 2027-28 campaign.

The 28-year-old center posted 54 points in the regular season and 12 points in the playoffs to lead the Blues to their first Stanley Cup title.

"The organisation, management and coaches have shown faith in me moving forward here. When they're gonna do that, you want to buy in," Schenn said after Friday's practice. "You see how good the team is here, how good we were last year, how good we can be, it only makes you want to stay.

"Over the period of the contract, the team is going to change. But the one thing that doesn't is the city. It's a great city to live in, a great organisation to play for. I'm looking forward to it."

Schenn arrived from the Philadelphia Flyers in 2017, and the Canadian had a career-high 28 goals and 70 points in his maiden season for St Louis.

Since being drafted by the Los Angeles Kings with the fifth pick in 2009, Schenn has appeared in 588 regular-season games, amassing 372 points – 154 goals and 218 assists – while he has recorded 26 points in 50 postseason games.

"Getting 'Schenner' signed was a priority for us over the summer," said Blues general manager Doug Armstrong. "To get this behind us is very comforting knowing we're one game into the season and we don't have to have this on our radar moving forward."
