Center Paul Stastny has signed a free agent contract with St. Louis Blues.
The former Colorado Avalanche center signed a four-year, $28 million contract that will give the Blues a $7 million salary cap charge per year, according to the NHL.
ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun was the first to report the news.
Stastny grew up in the St. Louis area and is the son of Peter Stastny, who played for St. Louis for two seasons in the 1990s, according to ESPN.
He will be joining the team with familiar faces. He already knows David Backes, T.J, Oshie and Kevin Shattenkirk, after playing with them on the U.S. Olympic team in Sochi this February, Fox Sports reports.
Stastny played his entire eight-year career in the NHL with the Colorado Avalanche, scoring 458 points in 558 games. Last season he scored 25 goals and assisted on 35 others in 71 games.
