ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Blues have signed winger B.J. Crombeen to a two-year contract extension.

The team announced the deal Wednesday.

Crombeen would have been a restricted free agent on July 1. The 25-year-old has spent the past three seasons with the Blues, including a career high 80 games last season. He registered seven goals and 14 points. Crombeen has 26 goals and 53 points in 248 career games over four seasons.

Crombeen joins forwards Patrik Berglund and Vladimir Sobotka and defensemen Roman Polak and Nikita Nikitin to resign with the team before becoming restricted free agents.

Crombeen was drafted by the Dallas Stars in the second round (54th overall) of the 2003 NHL draft. The Blues claimed him off waivers in 2008.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
