Erik Johnson Agrees To Contract With The Blues

from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

Blues defenseman Erik Johnson has agreed to a two-year contract extension with the club, a source has told the Post-Dispatch.

Financial terms of the deal weren’t immediately available.

An announcement on Johnson’s extension could be made by the club later today.

Johnson, 22, had been a restricted free agent who was not allowed to receive offer sheets because he missed the entire 2008-09 season with a knee injury.

Wow, that is an absolute bargain IMHO.

Weber and Doughty’s figures coming up should drastically change Johnson’s salary outlook for the 2012 season.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they signed similar short term deals with the CBA talks looming again.
