The St. Louis Blues signed defenseman Colton Parayko to an eight-year contract extension with an average annual value of $6.5 million, the team announced Wednesday.

The contract will kick in after the upcoming season has concluded and will run through the 2029-30 campaign.

"I can't wait to wear the Blue Note for another nine years," Parayko said. "St. Louis has been my home now for six seasons, and this is where I want to be. All the relationships I've gained, the teammates I've had, and the organization have all had a big impact on me. Winning here in 2019 was special, and I want the chance to stay here and do that again."

The 28-year-old had two goals and 10 assists in 32 games last season while averaging 21:20 minutes of ice time.

Parayko has spent his entire career with the Blues, suiting up in 418 career games and totaling 171 points.
