The St. Louis Blues Plan To Re-sign Jordan Binnington

from TSN,

St. Louis Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington is currently playing out the final season of a two-year, $8.8 million contract signed after he backstopped the Blues to their first-ever Stanley Cup in 2019. 

The 27-year-old is off to another strong start this season, with a 7-3-2 record with a .918 save percentage and a 2.37 goals-against average. He's started 12 games, compared to just four for backup Ville Husso, and Blues general manager Doug Armstrong told The Athletic the intention is to sign Binnington to an extension.

“Yeah, we try and keep (contract negotiations) behind closed doors,” Armstrong said. “But you know, we drafted him, and he took the long road to get here, but since he’s been here, we’ve had success, and obviously we’re hoping to find a way to keep him here.

“If you look at this age and you look at what he’s accomplished, you know most teams have a No. 1 guy, and we have a No. 1 guy. Certainly, if he’s not here, we’re going to have to go find another partner for Husso. So, our goal is to keep him here, obviously.”
