After the NHL's free agency period began on Saturday morning, the St. Louis Blues signed three players to new contracts.
Forward Chris Thorburn, formerly of the Winnipeg Jets, signed a two-year contract worth #1.8 million. Thorburn, 34, played in 64 games with the Jets last season, tallying four points on three goals and one assist.
The Blues also signed forward Beau Bennett to a one-year contract worth $650,000. Bennett, 25, scored eight goals and 11 assists for the New Jersey Devils last season, both of which are career highs.
Additionally, the team agreed to a one-year, $650,000 deal with Oskar Sundqvist, who was acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins last week for Ryan Reaves. The Blues are hoping Sundqvist can contribute as a third line center following Patrik Berglund's shoulder injury.
