Bleus and Kyrou agree on a two-year contract | Blues de Saint-Louis
The Blues have entered into a contract with another of their restricted free agents.
On the heels of a 2020-21 breakout season, forward Jordan Kyrou agreed to a two-year, $ 5.6 million contract with the team. (Average annual value: $ 2.8 million.) He will still be a restricted free agent when the deal ends.
Kyrou, still just 23, scored 14 goals with 21 assists in 55 games last season. He averaged a career-high 14 minutes 25 seconds of ice time. His goal tally and his points tally were both the team’s fifth best.
“Before last season my biggest thing was that I wanted to be consistent, to be a consistent player in the lineup,” Kyrou told Post-Dispatch. “Yes, I feel like I made good progress last year. This year I have to do the same.”
The Blues have made it clear that they are giving Kyrou every chance to claim a top-six role this coming season. The new contract is a vote of confidence, as it represents an almost four-fold increase from his salary cap of $ 758,333 from last season.
“Obviously, with the Blues and the organization, all the staff, we have a very good connection with each other,” said Kyrou. “We feel really good about each other. I’m obviously delighted to be back for sure.. I love playing for St. Louis.”
