BOUWMEESTER SIGNS EXTENSION

(ST. LOUIS) – St. Louis Blues Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has signed defenseman Jay Bouwmeester to a five-year contract extension.

 Bouwmeester, 29, dressed in 14 games for the Blues last season tying for third on the club  in points (7) and plus/minus (+5) while he tied for first in assists (6) and ranked second in time on ice per game (23:24) during the month of April.  In addition, during the 2013 regular season Bouwmeester extended his iron man streak to 635 games.

During the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the 6’4, 212-pound defenseman appeared in all six games for the Blues including his postseason debut. Overall, Bouwmeester ranked second on the team in ice time per game (25:08) while he tallied his first career playoff point (assist) in Game Four on May 6.

A former first round draft pick (3rd overall) of Florida in 2002, Bouwmeester has appeared in 11 seasons during his NHL career including stints with Florida, Calgary and St. Louis.  In 764 career games, he has recorded 307 points (72 goals, 235 assists) to go along with 469 penalty minutes.  In addition, Bouwmeester has been selected to two All-Star Games (2007, 2009) and earned first team All-Rookie Team honors in 2002-03.  Internationally, the Edmonton, Alberta native has represented Canada on nine occasions including three World Junior Championships, four World Championships and the 2006 Winter Olympics.  Bouwmeester has also been invited to Team Canada’s 2014 Olympic Orientation Camp in preparation for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
