Blues Sign Former 50 Goal Scorer
St. Louis has signed former NHL 50 goals scorer Jonathan Cheechoo to a one-year, two-way contract.
Cheechoo has over 500 NHL games on his resume including a 56 goal season back in 2005. Last season the soon to be 31 year old totaled 47 points in 55 games with Worcester in the AHL.
Cheechoo gives the Blues some added offensive depth with two-way contracts along with the likes of Chris Porter, Ryan reaves, and Brett Sterling.
Cheechoo has spent much of this summer working on his foot speed and trying to become more explosive. He’s hired a trainer who he’s been working with twice a day up at Stanford University. Cheechoo’s contract will pay him $600/$225. His base pay will be $600/$105 but if he never gets called up to NHL he will receive and additional $120,00 at the end of the season. If he is called up to the NHL he will obviously be paid off of his $600,000 salary.
More to come,
