The Blues have signed Curtis McKenzie to a one-year, two-way contract.

Since playing 53 games with the Stars in 2017, McKenzie has played in just seven NHL games in the last three years. He spent the last two seasons in the Golden Knights farm system and finished second on Chicago (AHL) in points (42) in 2020. He'll head to Springfield (AHL) to start 2021.

The Blues have signed Torey Krug to a seven-year deal worth $45.5 million ($6.5M AAV).

Krug is one of the league's best offensive-defensemen and will be a strong replacement for Alex Pietrangelo. Krug will likely skate on the top-pair with Colton Parayko and will quarterback the top power-play unit. His PP production has been elite but that's been on one of the best units in the NHL. It will be interesting to see how much of that carries over to St. Louis. Krug has registered at least 44 points in five straight seasons, averaging eight goals and 43 assists (51 points) per season.
