The Blues signed Joel Edmundson to a one-year deal worth $3.1 million (via arbitration).
In his first four NHL seasons, Edmundson has never played more than 69 games. Edmundson had just two goals and nine assists (11 points) in 64 games this past season. The 26-year-old ranked fourth among Blues defensemen in TOI/gm (19:23) while leading them in hits (128) and ranking fourth in blocked shots (106).
The Blues have signed Nikita Alexandrov to a three-year, entry-level contract.
Alexandrov was a second-round pick (No.62 overall) in this summer’s draft. The 18-year-old centre had 27 goals and 34 assists (61 points) in 64 QMJHL games last year. He will return to the Charlottetown Islanders for his third season in 2020.
The Blues have acquired Andreas Borgman from the Maple Leafs in exchange for Jordan Schmaltz.
Borgman spent all of 2019 in the AHL, where he racked up four goals and 13 assists (17 points) in 45 games. Borgman will likely start the 2020 season in the AHL but will be one of the first call-ups when the Blues need a defenseman.
The Blues re-signed Oskar Sundqvist to a four-year extension worth $11.0 million ($2.75M AAV).
Sundqvist set career-highs in goals (14), assists (17) and points (31) in 74 games last season. Sundqvist was third among Blues forwards in SH/TOI (1:39), hits (101) and tied for sixth in blocked shots (31). The 25-year-old centre went on to add nine points (4G / 5A) in 25 playoff games to help St. Louis to the Stanley Cup.
The Blues have signed Ville Husso to a one-year, two-way contract.
Husso appeared in 27 games with San Antonio (AHL) last season, going 6-18-0 with a 3.67 GAA and .871 SV%. With Jordan Binnington and Jake Allen clearly ahead of him on the depth chart, Husso will remain in the AHL to start the 2020 campaign.
