The St. Louis Blues have agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension with forward Sammy Blais, the team announced Wednesday.

The average annual value of Blais’ new deal is $1.5 million.

Blais, 23, missed 28 games in the fall with a wrist injury, and was briefly out of the lineup again in February with an undisclosed injury. However, he is putting up career-high numbers during the 2019-20 campaign, recording six goals and 13 points in 40 games, plus 155 hits.

In his NHL career, the 23-year-old has nine goals and 20 points in 83 games with St. Louis.

The Montmagny, Que., native was originally set to become a restricted free agent at the end of this season.

Blais was selected by the Blues in the sixth round of the 2014 NHL Draft, 176th overall.
