The St. Louis Blues signed undrafted free agent forward André Heim to a one-year entry-level contract Monday, per a media release. Heim, who plays both center and wing, has played the past six seasons in the Swiss National League.
St. Louis did not disclose the financial term of Heim’s one-year pact, although it will be a two-way contract. The 25-year-old was nearing the end of his eligibility to sign an entry-level deal and will be a restricted free agent in 2024.
Heim spent the past two seasons with HC Ambrì-Piotta, seeing a much larger role than in previous seasons with SC Bern. In 2022-23, Heim was an alternate captain for the Swiss club and posted 12 goals, 19 assists, 31 points, and a +10 rating in 42 regular-season games. While his team didn’t qualify for the postseason, he did win the Spengler Cup tournament with Ambrì-Piotta, scoring a goal and an assist in four games.
