St. Louis Blues Sign Brandon Saad – .


St. Louis Blues reconcile with free-standing forward Brandon Saad on a five-year contract, the team announced today. The contract is worth $ 22.5 million and an average annual value of $ 4.5 million. Bally Sports’ Andy Strickland reports the breakdown of the contract is as follows:
2021-22 : 4,5 millions $, NTC
2022-2023 : 4,5 millions $, NTC
2023-24 : 5,5 millions $, NTC
2024-25 : 4,375 millions $, NTC
2025-26 : 3,625 MM $, M-NTC

Saad joins the Blues, his fourth team in the NHL, as a veteran of 632 regular season games, 91 playoff games and two Chicago Blackhawks winning the Stanley Cup. Saad has been one of the most consistent secondary scoring options in the entire NHL during his career, scoring at least 15 goals in every season since 2013-14. He spent last year with the Colorado Avalanche, who won the Presidents’ Trophy, scored 15 goals and added nine assists for 24 points in 44 games, playing a more limited number of minutes in the game. ‘an in-depth team.

The 28-year-old Pittsburgh native will likely see his ice time increase again with the Blues, who go from Vladimir Tarasenko finally this summer. Although he really isn’t the fittest defensive forward, he does offer an improvement in the handling of the game on Mike Hoffmann, who left the team yesterday to sign a deal with the Montreal Canadiens. Still a goal scoring machine at this point, Saad’s contract appears to offer solid value over the duration of the deal given his track record.
