St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Wednesday the club has agreed to terms with forward Alexander Steen on a three-year contract extension worth $17.4 million.

Steen, 29, is having a career year, posting 36 points (22 goals) through 33 games this season.

The 6-foot, 212-pound forward tallied 20 goals in his first 24 games, becoming the fastest player in franchise history to reach that plateau since Brett Hull in 1990-91. In addition, Steen scored in each of the club’s first 10 wins, becoming the first player in NHL history to do so since Eric Lindros in 1993-94.

From Oct. 17 to Nov. 16, Steen became the first Blue since Pierre Turgeon (1999-2000) to record at least a point in 13 straight games, a stretch that also stands as the second longest by any player this season.

Overall this season, the Winnipeg, Manitoba native ranks high in most major offensive categories, including ninth in points, second in goals, 15th in power-play goals (5), fourth in game-winning goals (5), 17th in shots (112) and sixth in shooting percentage (19.6%).
