The Blues have signed Beau Bennett to a one-year deal worth $650K.

Bennett, 25, was the No.20 overall pick in 2010 but has yet to produce like a first rounder, largely thanks to injury issues. Bennett had 19 points (8G / 11A) in 65 games with the Devils last year and has just 64 points (24G / 40A) in 194 career NHL games. Bennett will likely serve as a bottom-6 forward in St. Louis.

The Devils will face the Islanders in a preseason game on Wednesday and Bennett will skate on the top line with Taylor Hall and Adam Henrique. Many expected Kyle Palmieri to skate there, but he is currently with Mike Cammalleri and Travis Zajac—a sign that Bennett will be given a true chance on the top line.

The Devils have inked Beau Bennett to a one-year contract worth $725K.

Bennett’s rights were acquired from the Penguins at the NHL draft and the Devils were successful in signing him to a one-year, “show me” contract. Bennett is a former first round pick, who has had a terrible time trying to stay healthy during his NHL career. He missed 49 games last year and 33 the year prior, but has shown flashes of a potential top-6 forward when he has managed to be on the ice.
