St. Louis Blues Extend Patrik Berglund Through 2013-14

Initial reports have indicated that the St. Louis Blues have agreed on a one-year contract extension for Patrik Berglund.

Berglund was set to become a restricted free agent on July 5th.  The 25-year-old center is said to make $3.25 million in 2013-14.

As of now the Blues have only agreed to a deal in principle as the contract has yet to be signed.

Throughout 358 games with the St. Louis Blues, Berglund has put up 92 goals and 188 points.  Berglund was selected by the Blues in the first round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

Berglund’s contract is the latest of Doug Armstrong’s moves after locking up Ian Cole and Taylor Chorney.  Armstrong is known for his one year contracts on restricted free agents calling them “prove-it” deals that ask the players to show that they are improving.

More as we have it.
