The Blues have signed veteran defenceman Robert Bortuzzo to a three-year extension worth $1.375 million per season.
St. Louis general manager Doug Armstrong announced Bortuzzo’s $4.125 million contract extension Saturday. Bortuzzo is now signed through the 2021-22 season.
The 29-year-old Bortuzzo has a goal and two assists in 12 games this season, his fifth with the Blues. He missed the season opener after being suspended and missed time with a lower-body injury.
The Thunder Bay, Ontario, native has skated in 288 regular-season and 23 playoff games with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Blues. He has 13 goals and 32 assists in regular-season play.
Bortuzzo was a member of the Kitchener Rangers from 2006 to 2009.
