ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has signed forward David Perron to a four-year contract. "Were excited to have David in the fold for the next four years," said Armstrong. "He made a great comeback by scoring 21 goals in 57 games. Were comfortable with his health, and were confident that he will continue to build on his offense." "I love the city of St. Louis and Im thrilled to play in front of these awesome fans for another four years," said Perron. "We had an excellent regular season but we all feel this team has so much more to accomplish." Perron, 24, dressed in 57 regular season games for the Blues last season recording 42 points (21 goals, 21 assists) and 28 penalty minutes while also posting five points (one goal, four assists) and 10 penalty minutes in nine playoff games. Though he missed the first 25 games of the 2011-12 season due to concussion symptoms, Perron finished the regular season fifth on the Blues in points and assists, second in goals, fourth in plusminus (19 careeer high), tied for fourth in power play goals (5) and tied for second in game-winning goals (4 career high). Overall, the 60, 200-pound forward has appeared in five National Hockey League (NHL) seasons (2007-2012), all with the Blues, totaling 173 points including 74 goals and 99 assists as well as 188 penalty minutes in 292 games.
