Oskar Sundqvist isn’t going anywhere.

The 29-year-old forward signed a two-year contract extension with the St. Louis Blues worth $3 million ($1.5 million AAV) on Thursday.

“It was my plan the whole time,” Sundqvist told “I wanted to be part of the team and turning the ship around. For me personally, I didn’t want to abandon it and leave (at the Trade Deadline). I wanted to stay here, help this team get back to being successful and getting back into the playoffs and (being) a competitor again. It was a huge part to stay here and hopefully help this team win hockey games.”

Sundqvist has posted 21 points (six goals, 15 assists) and 30 penalty minutes this season. Overall, he has totaled 144 points (56 goals, 88 assists) and 171 penalty minutes over 417 career regular-season games.

He also recorded 11 points (five goals, six assists) in 37 career playoff games and played an instrumental role in helping the Blues capture their first Stanley Cup in 2019.

“St. Louis has been my home for a couple of years now, and it’s definitely something I’m considering becoming my home outside of Sweden,” Sundqvist said. “The fan base in St. Louis is great, we’ve always had good fans. They’re respectful and loud, and it’s one of the most fun buildings I’ve ever played in.”
