Blues sign Brayden Schenn to eight-year, $52M extension

ST. LOUIS—The St. Louis Blues have signed Brayden Schenn to an eight-year contract extension worth $ 52 million, locking up one of their top centres after their run to the Stanley Cup championship last season.

The 28-year-old Schenn was acquired in a trade with Philadelphia in 2017 and put up a career-high 28 goals the following season and 70 points overall as he was named an all-star. Last season, Schenn had 54 points in the regular season and 12 more in the playoff run.

Schenn, a Saskatoon, Sask., native in his ninth full NHL season, has 154 goals and 218 assists in 588 regular-season games and eight goals and 18 assists in 50 career post-season games.

Earlier this year, the Blues made a flurry of moves, including signing newly arrived defenceman Justin Faulk to a $ 45.5 million, seven-year deal and signing goalie Jordan Binnington for two years and $ 8.8 million. Captain and top defenceman Alex Pietrangelo should be next up for a new contract.
