Blues defenceman Colton Parayko joins a Zoom call after signing an 8-year extension in St. Louis, discussing his fit with the club, what he needs to improve on, and his excitement for the chance to play his entire career in this city.

The St. Louis Blues and Colton Parayko have agreed to terms on an eight-year contract extension worth $52 million, the team announced Wednesday.

Parayko, who was entering the final year of his previous deal, will now be under contract through the 2029-30 season.

“I can’t wait to wear the Blue Note for another nine years,” Parayko said in a statement. “St. Louis has been my home now for six seasons, and this is where I want to be. All the relationships I’ve gained, the teammates I’ve had, and the organization have all had a big impact on me. Winning here in 2019 was special, and I want the chance to stay here and do that again.”

The 28-year-old has grown into a fixture on the Blues’ blueline throughout his 418-regular-season game tenure with the club, tallying 41 goals and 130 assists to go along with a plus-54 rating.

In the playoffs, he’s dressed in 70 games, scoring eight times and assisting on 19 others.
