Blues sign Steen to three-year extension
The St. Louis on Wednesday signed leading scorer Alexander Steen to a three-year, $17.4 million contract extension

The St. Louis Blues on Wednesday signed forward Alexander Steen to a three-year contract extension worth $17.4 million.

He is in the final season of a four-year, $13.45 million contract and would have been an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Steen leads the Blues in goals (22) and points (36) this season. He is tied with Corey Perry of the Anaheim Ducks for second among all NHL players with 22 goals, trailing the Washington Capitals' Alex Ovechkin, who has 28.

The 22 goals are two fewer than Steen's career high for a season, set in 2009-10 with the Blues.

Steen was acquired in a trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Nov. 24, 2008. In 570 regular-season games for the Maple Leafs and Blues, he has 145 goals and 339 points. Steen has four goals and seven points in 19 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
