"Barret has been a solid leader for our club, on and off the ice, and were happy to have him in the fold for the next three years," said Armstrong. "Hes a staple of the organization and the community and his positive influence on our young core has and will remain an invaluable asset." "St. Louis is our home and my family and I are excited to be staying," said Jackman. "I am proud of the progress we made this season but our fans deserve a championship and our team will not be satisfied until we achieve that goal." Jackman, 31, dressed in 81 games for the Blues last season recording 13 points (one goal, 12 assists) and 57 penalty minutes while tying for second on the club with a 20 rating and leading the team overall in blocked shots (153) and shorthanded time on ice per game (3:26).
