Continuing a trend that began with Alex Steen’s four year contract, the Blues continued to resign players on Friday. Forward Brad Winchester received a one year extension worth $700,000. Winchester played in 64 games last year, recording eight points. The 29 year-old recorded a career-high 21 points in 2008-2009.
Also resigned on Thursday was forward Vladimir Sobotka, acquired by the Blues in a trade with the Bruins on June 26. Last year Sobotka scored 10 points in 61 games for Boston. His deal was worth $750,000.
