ST. LOUIS (AP) -Brad Boyes, among the NHL leaders with 32 goals, signed a long-term contract with the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.
``Getting Brad signed was one of our top priorities this season,'' team president John Davidson said. ``We are counting on him to be an integral part of our offense for years to come.''
Boyes, 25, is second on the team with 47 points and second in the NHL with a 20.1 shooting percentage. He has slumped recently struggling for offense, getting three goals in the last 17 games.
The Blues have totaled four goals during an 0-5-1 slump that has them on the verge of dropping out of the playoff race.
Boyes was acquired from the Bruins for defenseman Dennis Wideman on Feb. 27, 2007. He was a first-round draft pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2000.
In 230 career games, he has 75 goals and 87 assists for 162 points, along with 75 penalty minutes.
