Ryan O'Reilly Wants To Stay In St. Louis

from Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic,

But don’t rule out the possibility of a contract extension with the Blues, O’Reilly told The Athletic Wednesday.

“Yeah, we’re starting to get a little dialogue going,” he said. “I think there will be some talks kind of going forward here, but yeah, there’s no timeline or such. That’s kind of all I can really give you on that.

“This is where I want to be. I hope I don’t get moved, but I think things will probably progress, especially with the deadline coming up and the talks with that. We’ll see how it goes. We’re starting to get into that.”

In the meantime, NHL clubs will be in contact with Armstrong about what it will take to trade for O’Reilly, and the rumors will continue to roll in.

“I still get messages from buddies every time — you’re rumored to this team, you’re rumored to that team,” O’Reilly said. “It’s honestly in one ear and out the other at this point. If anything, it’s a distraction, and I don’t want it to be a distraction for the team. You hear stuff, but like I said, in one ear, out the other.

“The main focus for me right now is just getting healthy and getting us back into the playoffs, and I think things will flow from there. My focus is to be here and contribute to us getting into the playoffs.”
