ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues have agreed to a US$17.4-million, three-year contract extension with forward Alex Steen.

Steen has 22 goals and 14 assists in 33 games this season. The 22 goals are tied for second in the NHL, trailing only Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals.

His 36 points are good for ninth in the league.

The 29-year-old Winnipeg-born Swede was set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Instead, he'll have a cap hit of $5.8 million over the next three seasons.

In 570 career games with Toronto and St. Louis, Steen has 145 goals and 194 assists. His start this season represented a breakout performance.

He scored 20 goals in his first 24 games in 2013-14, becoming the fastest player in franchise history to reach that plateau since Brett Hull in 1990-91.
