via the St. Louis Blues,

Colton Parayko isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

On Wednesday, Parayko agreed to terms on an eight-year contract extension with the St. Louis Blues worth $52 million ($6.5 million AAV).

The 2021-22 season would have been the final year of Parayko’s current five-year contract.

The new agreement will keep the St. Albert, Alberta native in St. Louis through the 2029-30 season.

“I can’t wait to wear the Blue Note for another nine years,” Parayko told stlouisblues.com. “St. Louis has been my home now for six seasons, and this is where I want to be. All the relationships I’ve gained, the teammates I’ve had, and the organization have all had a big impact on me. Winning here in 2019 was special, and I want the chance to stay here and do that again.

Parayko has dressed in 418 career regular-season games, tallying 171 points (41 goals, 130 assists), 119 penalty minutes and a plus-54 rating. In 70 career playoff games, he has posted 27 points (eight goals, 19 assists).

Since entering the NHL, Parayko is one of just 10 defensemen with at least 170 points and a plus-50 rating.

I “think” that’s a good deal, but can’t honestly say I’ve watched him play much after Pietrangelo left for LVGK, and Pietrangelo is one of the best d-man in the league, he makes everyone he plays with better, and moves down the slotting/pecking order of matchups
