David Perron Signs Four-Year, $15.25 Million Contract Extension With St. Louis Blues

There were three major RFAs that the Blues needed to take care of this summer, and two of them are inked. Chris Stewart signed a one year deal several weeks ago, and today the Blues avoided arbitration by signing key forward David Perron to a four year, $15.25 million contract extension. Terms of the contract are as follows:

Not half bad. Perron, who was drafted 26th overall in 2007, has made quite a career for himself with the Blues despite missing two thirds of 2010-2011 and a decent portion of last season due to a concussion. He has 173 points in 292 games, and played portions of last season on both the top and second line. He finished second in goals behind captain David Backes with 21 despite not starting his season until 25 games in.

The Blues' remaining big RFA is TJ Oshie, who intends to file for arbitration today if a deal cannot be reached for the team. That ensures that he should be with the team for either one or two more seasons, though the Blues would probably like to sign the forward to a longer contract.
