Elliott Signs 3-Year Deal with Blues

Listen to Blues GM Doug Armstrong's media conference call to discuss a new three-year extension for Brian Elliott and the team's goaltending situation.

ST. LOUIS - St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Monday the club has re-signed goaltender Brian Elliott to a three-year contract.

Elliott, 29, appeared in 31 regular season games last season, posting an 18-6-2 record while ranking 11th in both save percentage (.922) and shutouts (4), and second with a 1.96 goals-against average.

"Thanks to the fans and people of St. Louis for making my decision to stay with the Blues easy," Elliott said on his Twitter account on Monday morning. "(I'm) proud to play for the Blue note."

The 6-foot-2, 209-pound goaltender has spent his past three campaigns with the Blues, including 2011-12, when he set single-season franchise records in save percentage (.940), goals-against average (1.56) and shutouts (9) en route to earning the 2012 Jennings Trophy.

Over the past three seasons, Elliott ranks second overall (at least 50 games played) with a .680 win percentage (55-24-7), while his 16 shutouts not only lead the League, but are tied for second in Blues franchise history.

Overall, Elliott has appeared in seven NHL seasons, including stints with Ottawa, Colorado and St. Louis. He has accumulated a 116-77-23 record, including a 2.48 goals-against average, .910 save-percentage and 25 shutouts in 235 career regular season games.

In addition, Elliott has dressed in 18 career postseason games, posting a 6-10 record, including a 2.55 goals against average and a .898 save percentage.

The Newmarket, Ontario native was originally signed by the Blues as a free agent on July 1, 2011.
