Leddy agrees to 4-year deal with Blues

by Press Release

Defenseman Nick Leddy has agreed to a four-year contract extension with the St. Louis Blues worth $16 million ($4 million AAV).

Leddy, 31, was acquired from the Detroit Red Wings at the Trade Deadline last season in exchange for Oskar Sundqvist, Jake Walman and a future second-round draft pick.

The 6-foot, 205-pound defenseman played 20 regular-season and nine postseason games after being acquired by the Blues. Leddy scored 13 points across the 29 total games played, with a +7 overall plus/minus rating, and his five playoff points tied for second-most among Blues defensemen.

Drafted No. 16 overall in the 2009 NHL Draft, Leddy began his career with four seasons in Chicago, winning the Stanley Cup in 2013 (alongside Brandon Saad). He then spent seven years with the New York Islanders, in which he scored 243 points (45 goals, 198 assists) in 518 games before spending the 2021-22 season in Detroit and St. Louis.

Over his career, Leddy has played 851 games, recording 68 goals and 292 assists for 360 points.
