ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Monday the club has re-signed defenseman Erik Johnson to a two-year contract.

“We're excited that we have reached a deal with Erik and now we can put our focus on the upcoming season,” said Armstrong. "Erik is a key contributor to the group and we are confident he will build on the success he had in the 2009-10 season.”

“I could not be more grateful and appreciative to sign an extension in St. Louis,” said Johnson. “I’m absolutely thrilled about where this team is headed and it remains my ultimate goal to bring a Stanley Cup to the city of St. Louis in the near future.”

Johnson, 22, set new career highs and led all Blues defenseman in points (39), goals (10), assists (29) and shots (186) in 2009-10.

In addition, the 6’4”, 236-pound defenseman tied a single-game career high with three points (3A) on October 17 at Anaheim while also matching a career-long five game points streak from November 19th to the 27th.

Among all Blues skaters, Johnson’s 29 assists and 39 points ranked fourth and eighth respectively while he tied for second on the team with six power play goals and led all Blues skaters with two overtime tallies.

On November 19 vs. Phoenix, Johnson scored the game-winning overtime goal 17 seconds into the extra frame, the quickest by a Blues player since Al MacInnis scored 15 seconds into overtime on October 28, 2000.

In international competition, Johnson helped the United States capture the Silver Medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, posting a goal and a plus-3 rating in six games.

Overall, Johnson has appeared in 148 games for the Blues amassing 72 points including 15 goals and 57 assists.

The Bloomington, Minnesota native became the first player in Blues history to be drafted number one overall at the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
