F Schenn signs an 8-year, $52M extension with Blues

Forward Brayden Schenn signed an eight-year, $52 million contract extension Friday that will keep him with the St. Louis Blues through the 2027-28 season.

The 28-year-old Schenn has spent the previous two seasons with the Blues, recording a career-high 70 points (28 goals, 42 assists) in 2017-18 and 54 points (17 goals, 37 assists) last season. He added 12 points (five goals, seven assists) in the Blues’ postseason run to the Stanley Cup championship in 2018-19.

The Los Angeles Kings selected Schenn with the No. 5 overall pick of the 2009 NHL Draft. He played just nine games with the Kings, who traded him to Philadelphia in June 2011.

Six years later, the Flyers traded him to the Blues, and he was named an All-Star in 2018.

In 588 regular-season games, Schenn has 372 points (154 goals, 218 assists) and added 26 points (eight goals, 18 assists) in 50 playoff games in his career.
