ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- David Perron signed a 2-year contract with the Detroit Red Wings after entering free agency.

Perron spent 11 non-consecutive seasons with the Blues from 2007-2013, 2016-2017 and 2018-2022. The Blues selected Perron in the 2007 NHL draft in the first round as the 26th overall pick.
