he St. Louis Blues have signed Ryan Reaves to a four-year extension worth $1.125 mill. per season.
Reaves, 26, is in his fourth season with the Central-leading Blues and in 26 games, he's tallied two goals, three assists and 65 minutes in penalties. Reaves was drafted in the fifth round of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.
Reaves has been more known as the energy guy who pumps up home crowd with bone-crunching hits and dropping the gloves than his scoring ability. He had started carving out a permanent role in the Blues lineup, but will now sit for a month and give way to Magnus Paajarvi.
