According to Gene Principe of Sportsnet, the St. Louis Blues have signed free agent forward David Perron to a two-year contract worth $7.5MM. Perron was originally drafted by the Blues in the first round (26th overall) back in 2007.
Perron got off to a slow start last season with Pittsburgh, picking up just four goals and 12 assists in 43 games. However, a midseason trade to Anaheim for Carl Hagelin seemed to revitalize him, as he scored eight times and added 12 assists in just 28 games with the Ducks despite playing less ice time per game than he did with the Penguins. He also added a goal and two assists in Anaheim’s first round playoff loss.
In his career, Perron has played in 570 career NHL games between St. Louis, Pittsburgh, and Anaheim, recording 141 goals and 191 assists.
