Blues Re-Sign D’Agostini
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong announced on Friday the club has re-signed forward Matt D’Agostini to a two-year contract. The agreement occurs right after D’Agostini became an unrestricted free agent.
D’Agostini, 24, will reportedly receive $1.5 million in the upcoming season and $1.8 million in the 2012-13 season.
“Matt had a solid year for us last season,” said GM Doug Armstrong. “We look forward to his continued growth as a Blue and in this league.”
D’Agostini posted his best professional season in 2010-11 with the Blues, setting new career marks with 82 games, 46 points, 21 goals, 25 assists, 6 power play goals, and 5 game-winning goals. The 6’0”, 200-pound forward has dressed in 183 NHL games over 4 seasons between the Blues and the Montreal Canadiens amassing 71 points including 35 goals and 36 assists.
The Ontario native was originally drafted by Montreal in the sixth round in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. He was acquired by the Blues from Montreal in exchange for Aaron Palushaj on March 2, 2010.
