The St. Louis Blues are making sure Colton Parayko isn’t going anywhere. He and the franchise agreed to an 8-year contract extension on Wednesday, per the Blues website.

Parayko sounds thrilled to remain with the Blues.

“I can’t wait to wear the Blue Note for another nine years,” Parayko told “St. Louis has been my home now for six seasons, and this is where I want to be. All the relationships I’ve gained, the teammates I’ve had, and the organization have all had a big impact on me. Winning here in 2019 was special, and I want the chance to stay here and do that again.”
