ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues’ President John Davidson announced today the club has re-signed center Jay McClement to a multi-year contract.
“Jay played his best season in the NHL this past year on both ends of the ice and is one of the best defensive forwards in the league,” said Davidson. “He will continue to provide strength and experience on the penalty kill as we move forward.”
McClement, 26, led all forwards in the NHL with 315:08 of shorthanded time this past season. He was one of four Blues to play in all 82 games, a career-high and posted career-highs in points (26), goals (12) and assists (14). McClement recorded a career-high three-game goal scoring streak from Feb. 24-Feb. 28, scoring three goals over-the-span.
The Kingston, Ontario native has skated in 311 career NHL games, all with St. Louis, collecting 111 points (35 goals, 76 assists) along with 140 penalty minutes.
