St Louis Blues Sign Vince Dunn to Contract Extension

The St Louis Blues and Vince Dunn have agreed to terms on a one-year contract extension, paying the restricted free-agent defenseman $1.875 million next season.

The two sides could not agree on a long-term deal which was the goal when negotiations started, however they have landed on a number to ensure Dunn is in St Louis when camp opens in a couple of days.

The 24-year-old d-man tallied 23 points in 71 games last season and is expected to see a boost in responsibility with Alex Pietrangelo now in Vegas. Dunn's plus 15 rating was one of the best on the Blues last season and the team loves his two-way game. 

In 224 career games the former 2nd-round pick has chipped in with 82 points. 

Great deal for both sides and add Dunn to your watchlist on your fantasy team.
