Blues agree to terms with Pietrangelo to 7-year deal

A Blues holdout, is no longer a hold out. 

The team announced that they have agreed to terms with Defenseman Alex Pietrangelo. Below is the release from the team.

 

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has agreed to terms with defenseman Alex Pietrangelo on a seven-year contract.

“We’re excited to have Alex signed over the next seven years as he will continue be a key component of our franchise,” said Armstrong.  “He is an elite defenseman in this league and will be for years to come.”

Pietrangelo, 23, dressed in 47 games last season leading the Blues’ defense with 24 points including five goals and 19 assists while ranking 13th in ice time per game (25:06) among all National Hockey League (NHL) defensemen.  In the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Pietrangelo posted two points (one goal, one assist) in six games while tying for second on the club with a +2 rating. 

Since his first full season in 2010, Pietrangelo is tied for sixth among all defensemen in points (118), ranks 10th in goals (28), tied for ninth in assists (90) and slots 15th in plus/minus (+34), while he became the youngest defenseman in Blues history to record back-to-back 40-plus point seasons in 2010-11 (43) and 2011-12 (51).  In addition, in 2011-12, Pietrangelo joined Al MacInnis as the only defensemen in club history to record six game-winning goals and six power play goals in the same season. 

Overall, the 6’3, 201-pound defenseman has appeared five NHL seasons accumulating 121 points including 29 goals and 92 assists to go along with 73 penalty minutes in 224 career regular season games, while tallying seven points (one goal, six assists) in 14 career postseason games. 

 Internationally, the King City, Ontario native has represented Canada on three occasions including winning the Gold Medal at the 2009 World Juniors and the Silver Medal at the 2010 World Juniors, while also appearing in seven games at the 2011 World Championships.  In addition, Pietrangelo recently participated in Team Canada’s Olympic Orientation Camp in preparation for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

 

Pietrangelo was originally drafted by the Blues in the first round, 4th overall, of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
