St. Louis Blues Sign Jordan Kyrou to an 8-Year Extension

The St. Louis Blues have signed forward Jordan Kyrou to an eight-year extension worth $81.25 million per season.

The St. Louis Blues have handed out another big contract. The team signed Robert Thomas not long ago to an eight-year deal. On Tuesday, they handed out another max-term extension to one of their players, giving Jordan Kyrou the same deal, eight years by $8.125 million per season. As the Blues point out in their statement of the extension, the deal will keep Kyrou in St. Louis until the 2030-31 season.

Popular analytics Twitter account JFresh writes that Kyrou “is a dynamic offensive winger who dominates carrying the puck in transition and striking off the rush. Primarily a playmaker but has a terrific shot as well. Gives a lot back defensively, like most who play his up-tempo style.” They add that the player projects well and it’s not hard to see why the Blues chose to extend him now.

The forward experienced a breakout season in 2021-22, posting 75 points (27 goals, 48 assists) in 74 regular-season games. There was talk he might be part of a deal that was being put together in an attempt to land Matthew Tkachuk from the Calgary Flames but Tkachuk ended up going to the Florida Panthers. The Blues may find they are ultimately happy that deal didn’t go down based on the projections for what Kyrou could become. He was currently an RFA and this deal removes a number of his unrestricted free agency years.

Kyrou said of his extension with the organization:

“I’m so thankful to the Blues organization for putting their trust in me and giving me the opportunity to wear the Blue Note for the forseeable future. Being able to call St. Louis my home is amazing. I can’t say enough about how much I love the city. And to the best fans in the League, I can’t thank you enough for always showing me love and support.”
