2012 NHL Free Agency: Blues Re-Sign Forward Jamie Langenbrunner

Forward Jamie Langenbrunner isn't a top-six forward anymore. He hasn't been for a few years, but that doesn't mean that he's outlived his usefulness. Langenbrunner's a solid bottom-six guy, good for fifteen minutes a night, and is excellent on the penalty kill. He's also an assistant captain, and an important Cup-winning presence in the locker room. Many have credited him with helping guide the younger Blues to the playoffs last season. He played 70 games last season, scoring six goals and 18 assists. He also finished +7, and was one of the better shut-down guys on the team.

He had said that he would like to re-sign with the Blues upon the end of the last season, and today the Blues made that happen with a one-year deal. The contract is a bit of a pay-cut for the forward, who was on the books for a $2,750,000 cap hit in 2011-2012. This season his salary will be $1,250,000 with a $250,000 bonus for just $1.5 million against the cap.
