The Blues signed Dominik Bokk to a three-year, entry-level contract.
The Blues traded up to No.25 in this summer’s draft to select Bokk. The German left winger tore up Sweden’s U20 league, picking up 41 points (14G / 27A) in 35 games before moving to the top league. Playing against men, Bokk had just one goal and one assist in 15 games, but will likely have a full season in that league in 2019.

The Blues have re-signed Dmitrij Jaskin to a one-year deal worth $1.1M.
Jaskin absolutely torched the QMJHL and posted solid numbers in the AHL, but has yet to find success in his first 266 career NHL games. The former second-round pick had just six goals and 11 assists (17 points) in 76 games last season and he is quickly falling down the depth chart in St. Louis as they continue to sign forwards and top prospects come through the system.
The Blues have re-signed Oskar Sundqvist to a one-year deal worth $700K.
The Blues have re-signed Robby Fabbri to a one-year, $925K contract.
Fabbri re-injured his knee in training camp last year and missed the entire 2017-18 season. The 22-year-old has averaged 19 goals and 25 assists (43 points) per 82 games over the first two seasons of his NHL career. Fabbri is expected to be ready for the start of the 2019 season and will be a middle-6 winger for a team that has improved a lot this offseason.
The Blues have acquired Ryan O’Reilly from the Sabres for Tage Thompson, Vladimir Sobotka, Patrik Berglund, a 2019 first-round pick and a 2021 second-round pick.
The Blues have signed Chad Johnson to a one-year, $1.75M deal.
The Blues have signed Brian Flynn to a one-year, two-way deal worth $650K.
The Blues have signed David Perron to a four-year, $16M ($4.0M AAV) contract.
Perron was originally drafted by the Blues and played for them from 2008-to-2013 and against in 2017. The 30-year-old returns to St. Louis after one year in Vegas, where he posted career-highs in assists (50) and points (66). Perron will find himself back in the Blues’ top-6, where he will likely play alongside Ryan O’Reilly.

The Blues have signed Tyler Bozak to a three-year, $15M ($5.0M AAV) deal.
Bozak is a No.2/No.3 line centre with some offensive ability. Bozak skates very well and is good on the face-off dot. The 32-year-old has scored 20-plus just once during his nine year career, but has registered 30-plus assists in three of the last five years. Bozak was likely going to be the Blues second-line centre, until they acquired Ryan O’Reilly from Buffalo—pushing him down the depth chart.

The Blues have signed Nikita Soshnikov to a one-year deal worth $800K.
Between the Maple Leafs and Blues, Soshnikov appeared in just 15 NHL games last season, scoring just one goal with one assist. Soshnikov figures to be a reserve forward with the Blues this upcoming season.

The Blues select Dominik Bokk with the No.25 overall pick (acquired from Toronto).
Perron is expected to draw back into the Vegas lineup for Game 5.
Perron was a healthy scratch for Game 4, but it looks like he will replace Ryan Carpenter on the Golden Knights’ third line. Perron is still searching for his first playoff goal since April 23rd, 2016—a span of 27 games—but he has eight assists in 14 games this postseason.
There is a “good chance” that Perron (illness) returns to the Golden Knights lineup for Game 4.
Perron is expected to be a healthy scratch for Game 2.
