Ryan Reaves Contract Extension: Blues Bruiser Signs Four Year Deal

This is how Reaves celebrates new contracts. - Dilip Vishwanat

Some good news comes out of the blue for the Blues.

The Blues are rolling along on a seven game winning streak, playing the best hockey in the league. Fans should be happy, and if they're not, something's wrong with them. There isn't any way that this stretch of the season could get any better.

Unexpected player signing? Well, maybe that would.

Blues forward Ryan Reaves, who just returned after some time on the IR nursing a broken hand, signed a contract extension today. The four year contract is worth $4.5 million, or $1.125 million a season. It'll be a nice little raise for the previously-pending UFA, whose current contract pays him $600,000 a season, per CapGeek.com.

He might be a big fourth liner, but he's got a couple of goals and three assists to go along with them. He's also defensively sound, and not someone other teams want to have to deal with.

At this rate the Blues'll lock up their UFAs before the end of the season. Remaining are Derek Roy, Brenden Morrow, Adam Cracknell, Carlo Colaiacovo, and of course, the two goaltenders.
