ST. LOUIS -- The Alex Pietrangelo contract dispute with the St. Louis Blues didn't last very long into training camp. The sides wanted a deal done as quickly as possible, and it came to fruition Friday.
The Blues' top-end defenseman signed a seven-year contract worth $45.5 million ($6.5 million per season).
"Really excited to be a part of Blues organization for the next 7 years," Pietrangelo wrote on his verified Twitter account (@apetro_27). "Excited for the opportunity."
There's not much to say. We played like [garbage]. I think every guy in the room should be completely embarrassed about how they played tonight. Every single person. To start a road trip, one of the biggest road trips and have a division rival chasing you down and have a ton on the line, it's ridiculous how we played tonight.
