Jackman Signs Three-Year Contract With Blues

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has signed Barret Jackman to a three-year contract.

“Barret has been a solid leader for our club, on and off the ice, and we’re happy to have him in the fold for the next three years,” said Armstrong.  “He’s a staple of the organization and the community and his positive influence on our young core has and will remain an invaluable asset.”

“St. Louis is our home and my family and I are excited to be staying,” said Jackman.  “I am proud of the progress we made this season but our fans deserve a championship and our team will not be satisfied until we achieve that goal.”

$3.16 average salary.

That’s a good deal for the Blues, but I’m not sure how he’ll be doing by year 3.

Took a paycut to stick around ‘til he’s 34, smart deal for both sides.  STL looks really good if Jackman finishes the contract playing the way a guy like Rob Scuderi (33) played this past season for LAK.

yea, i agree.  That is an excellent salary hit for a guy like Jackman.  I know personally i was hoping he would make it to July 1st to see if the pens could snag him.

Thank God STL signed him.  Now we don’t have to live in fear of DET ending up with that stupid pylon.
