According to sources, Blues defenseman Barret Jackman rejected a multi-year contract offer from the team earlier this week.
One source indicated that the Blues’ offer averaged less than $3 million per season. Jackman, who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, is making $2.2 million this season. He signed a one-year contract last summer when he and the Blues couldn’t agree on a long-term contract.
“The discussions are healthy and ongoing . . . that’s all I can say,” Blues President John Davidson said Friday. “With Barret, it’s been an ongoing conversation since last summer. You try to find some common ground. If you do, you do. If you don’t, you don’t.”
