Blues Bring Back Defenseman Nick Leddy For 4 Years

Heading into free agency, it seemed like the St. Louis Blues were going to let the veteran defenseman walked as Leddy was looking for to much money. With the Blues having other needs that needed to be addressed such as David Perron, Leddy was on the bottom of the list

That all changed 45 minutes into free agency as the Blues announced Leddy would be returning on a four-year deal worth $4 million annually. The Blues acquired Leddy at the trade deadline and he slotted into their top four.

The 31-year-old left-shot defenseman recorded two goals and six assists for eight points in 20 regular season games for the Blues. He did impress in the postseason as he added one goal and four assists for five points in nine playoff games while posting a plus-4.

The Blues are reportedly shopping Torey Krug, which would open up more playing time for Leddy on the left side. With Leddy getting paid it seems it’s even more certain now that David Perron will not be coming back. The Blues have plenty of time to make moves still as it seems GM Doug Armstrong is not done and will continue to reshape this roster as the Blues look to contend again next season.
