Alexander Steen, forward of the St. Louis Blues, has agreed to a three year extension with the team. The deal is reportedly worth $17.4 million.
The extension also includes a no-trade clause, which takes effect immediately. Steen will make salaries of $5.1 million, $5.8 million and $6.5 million, according to his agent.
Steen has been a huge, impact player for the Blues over the past six years. But this season most of all has been a good one for Steen.
The 29-year-old Steen is having the best season of his career with 22 goals and 36 points in 33 games. He was the first player in the NHL to score in each of the team’s first 10 wins since Eric Lindros in 1993-94 and scored 20 goals in 24 games, a franchise best since Brett Hull in 1990-91.
Steen became the first Blues player to get a point in 13 straight games since Pierre Turgeon in 1999-2000.
