Schenn, 28, was one of two big names the Blues had scheduled for unrestricted free agency in the summer of 2020, alongside captain Alex Pietrangelo. After locking up their second-line center to a long-term deal, they’ll now be able to put their full focus on the defenseman to try and keep him around. Pietrangelo’s future was put into the spotlight after the team recently acquired and extended Justin Faulk from the Carolina Hurricanes, but there is obviously still plenty of time to get a deal worked out if the team can find the cap space.

Sylvanie-USA TODAY SportsThe 35-year-old struggled badly last season with just seven goals and 20 points in 70 games and even saw himself as a healthy scratch during several games during the Bruins' Stanley Cup playoff run. He has two years remaining at $6M per season, but that will not be enough to guarantee a spot. Backes has spent the summer retraining his body to make sure he stays in the rotation.

The St . Louis Blues announced on Friday morning the team has signed forward Brayden Schenn to an eight - year contract extension . The Blues are in a good situation having Schenn for the next eight - years . While it is a lot to pay for him when he gets older, Schenn could have received more on

The St . Louis Blues inked forward Brayden Schenn to an eight - year contract extension with an average annual value of .5 million, the team General manager Doug Armstrong could have a busy summer in 2020, so signing Schenn will allow him to focus on some other key players who will need

That may be an issue after this new extension for Schenn, as the Blues now have close to $74M in salary commitments for the 2020-21 season. A $6.5M cap hit matches Faulk’s new deal and puts Schenn ahead of everyone else not named Vladimir Tarasenko or Ryan O’Reilly, who are both signed through 2022-23 with $7.5M average annual salaries.

Not only does this contract put the squeeze on the Blues front office in terms of cap dollars, it also brings with it a fair amount of risk given the age of Schenn when it will kick in. He’ll turn 29 before ever playing a game on the new extension, meaning the deal will take him into his mid-30s when most players enter a rapid decline phase. The trade for that was keeping the cap hit relatively low, especially after seeing other free agent centers like Kevin Hayes receive more than $7M this summer. Schenn compares favorably to Hayes in terms of offensive production, especially if he can get back to the level he showed in 2017-18.

Blues' committal to Faulk creates questions about Pietrangelo's future

  Blues' committal to Faulk creates questions about Pietrangelo's future It seemed almost certain that Alex Pietrangelo would be traded last December when the St. Louis Blues were in the NHL's basement. As we know now, St. Louis opted against a rebuild and, after a turnaround for the ages, Pietrangelo became the first player in franchise history to hoist the Stanley Cup. Since then, most thought he was going to remain a Blue for life. However, St. Louis traded for blue-liner Justin Faulk on Tuesday, which suddenly makes Pietrangelo's future unclear. The Blues sent defenseman Joel Edmundson, former first-rounder Dominik Bokk, and a seventh-round pick to the Carolina Hurricanes for Faulk and a fifth-rounder.

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

One of the biggest questions about the deal, however, will be whether Schenn stays at center throughout the length of the contract. The 2009 fifth-overall pick has rarely been a full-time pivot and moving to the wing does take away some of his value to the team. If his offensive totals don’t rebound from the 17-goal disappointment last season and he is moved out of the center position, the $6.5M could seem like an expensive price tag in a few years.

Still, the Blues just won the Stanley Cup on the backs of physical forwards like Schenn and they’re banking on him being an impact player for a while longer. On their playoff run last season he scored 12 points and registered 83 hits in 26 games, buying in completely with head coach Craig Berube’s system.

Getting extension done for Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo could take time .
With Brayden Schenn’s extension getting done so quickly in St. Louis, some wondered if the Blues would also be getting something done soon with Pietrangelo.However, an asking price around the $9M per-year range appears to be too steep for the Blues. Also, Strickland notes that Pietrangelo’s representatives tend to stay away from a lot of early extensions in the hopes that getting closer to a firm deadline will work out to the benefit of their clients.
