(Oct. 4, 2016) – Barret Jackman announced his retirement from the National Hockey League (NHL) today, after signing a one-day contract with the St. Louis Blues. Jackman leaves behind a 14-year career, during which he played in 13 seasons and over 800 games with the Blues.
from Jeremy P. Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
The career of the longest-tenured current professional athlete in St. Louis sports is coming to an end.
The Blues have notified Blues defenseman Barret Jackman, 34, that they will be going in a "different direction" and thus not re-signing him this offseason.
Jackman, whose three-year, $9.5 million contract expires on June 30, will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. He will be allowed to sign with another organization without compensation.
Jackman was not immediately available for comment Thursday.
In a postseason interview with the Post-Dispatch, prior to meeting with the Blues regarding his future, Jackman said he remained interested in continuing his career, if not here, somewhere.
from Kerry Fraser of TSN,
The margin for error with regard to the location of contact was very miniscule when Andrew Shaw launched into the air and delivered a high hit on Barret Jackman just as the Blues defender released a pass from behind the net. We can only assume that Jackman's chest and right shoulder was the intended target of Shaw's hit based on the result. So many things can go wrong when a player leaves his feet to become airborne. It was most fortunate for both players that Jackman's head did not become the main point of contact of Shaw's upward launch. If that had been the case, I would hope that the penalty assessment would be different and that a suspension would be imposed.
The absence of significant contact or Jackman's head being the main point of contact eliminates a violation of Rule 48 (illegal check to the head) and which could most likely result in a suspension for an illegal check of this magnitude. Instead, since Shaw left his feet to deliver a check where the main point of contact was to the upper body and off the head of Jackman, a violation of Rule 42 (charging) occurred.
Andrew Shaw got all of his two minutes worth for this charging penalty.

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.”
from the St, Louis Blues,
St. Louis Blues President John Davidson announced today that defenseman Barret Jackman has agreed to a contract extension with the club. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Barret has been a staple on the blueline for the Blues since his rookie season,” said Davidson. “He logs plenty of minutes per game and will continue to be a key part of our team as we move forward.”
from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
Jackman reportedly turned down the Blues’ initial offer, a three-year extension that averaged less than $3 million per season. Once believed to be seeking a contract with an annual payout in the $4 million to $5 million range, Jackman’s camp now appears to be looking for a figure closer to “market value.”
What is market value for the Calder Cup winner who will turn 27 on March 5? Jackman has struggled offensively (two goals, six assists) this season, but he ranks second on the team in ice time per game (21 minutes, 56 seconds).
Last week, Chicago re-signed Brent Seabrook to a three-year extension that averages $3.43 million per season. On Saturday, Minnesota signed Nick Schultz to a six-year extension averaging $3.5 million a year.
from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
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.”

St. Louis Blues President John Davidson announced today that the team has placed defenseman Barret Jackman on injured reserve after suffering a concussion in the second period of last night’s game against the Red Wings. In addition, the team has recalled defenseman Steve Wagner from the Blues’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen
