by Chris Pinkert / St. Louis Blues

ST. LOUIS - David Perron has spent the majority of his NHL career as a member of the St. Louis Blues, and that might come as a surprise since he's been away for the last three years.

Since being traded to Edmonton after the 2012-13 season, Perron has also played for the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Anaheim Ducks.

On July 1, Perron signed a two-year, $7.5 million deal to return to St. Louis, where it all began. Some things have changed, while some have stayed the same.

We caught up with Perron at the start of training camp to find out what's new. Below is our full Q&A.

Local nine-year-old Kathryn Lankau receives a special present from Blues forward Jaden Schwartz

Meet Kathryn Lankau.

She's a beautiful nine-year-old girl in an abnormal situation. Four years ago, Kathryn's father, Russell, fell ill with flu-like symptoms. For nearly a week, he suffered through vomiting, chills and pain before it became too much to handle.

At 4 a.m. on November 11, 2012, Kathryn's older sister rushed Russell to the hospital for emergency attention. A short time later, his heart stopped. For 45 minutes, the hospital frantically attempted to resuscitate him without success.

Russell passed away due to septic shock. He was 40 years old.

Steen's contract extension

Steen sticks around until 2021

Alexander Steen signs a four-year contract extension with the Blues, which will keep him in St. Louis through the 2020-21 season

  • 00:46 •

ST. LOUIS - Alexander Steen will be a member of the St. Louis Blues for the forseeable future.

Steen signed a four-year contract extension worth $23 million on Friday, the first day of training camp. The 32-year-old forward, who had one year remaining on his current three-year deal, is now signed with the Blues through the 2020-21 season.

This marks the second time Steen could have elected to test the market as an unrestricted free agent, but instead chose to sign an extension to remain a Blue.

"It would have been extremely tough to leave here, but now I don't have to worry about that," Steen said Friday. "I don't think I could have seen myself throwing another (jersey) over my shoulders right now. It takes some time to grow attached like this, and for me, it's nothing that I take lightly and I'm extremely happy to be here."

"St. Louis has become home. I've been here eight years," Steen added. "I've gotten to know a lot of people within hockey and outside hockey here. We seem to be spending less and less time in Sweden to make sure we get our time in here as well. It's been an incredible journey and St. Louis is definitely somewhere I see as home now."
