Blues Sign Jackman to 3-Year Deal

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Monday the club has signed Barret Jackman to a three-year contract.

“Barret has been a solid leader for our club, on and off the ice, and we’re happy to have him in the fold for the next three years,” said Armstrong. “He’s a staple of the organization and the community and his positive influence on our young core has and will remain an invaluable asset.”

“St. Louis is our home and my family and I are excited to be staying,” said Jackman. “I am proud of the progress we made this season but our fans deserve a championship and our team will not be satisfied until we achieve that goal."

Jackman, 31, dressed in 81 games for the Blues last season recording 13 points (one goal, 12 assists) and 57 penalty minutes while tying for second on the club with a +20 rating and leading the team overall in blocked shots (153) and shorthanded time on ice per game (3:26).

"He felt he wanted to stay here and continue to grow what we're building right now," Armstrong said. "It just became a business decision, an economic decision, and we were able to work through that.

"I think both sides are satisfied and excited about moving forward."

The 6-foot, 205-pound defenseman has spent his entire 10-year NHL career with the Blues, compiling 139 points (20 goals, 119 assists) and 843 penalty minutes in 598 games while also becoming the club’s only Calder Trophy winner in 2003.

Jackman is currently tied for 10th overall in franchise history in games played, ranks 7th overall in penalty minutes and 10th in points among Blues defensemen.

The Trail, BC native was originally drafted by the Blues in the first round, 17th overall, of the 1999 Entry Draft and is currently the longest tenured athlete among all St. Louis sports teams.
