Blues secure Stanley Cup netminder, Binnington agrees to two-year deal

The Blues' star was the catalyst for change behind the team's worst-to-first year, posting a 24-5-1 record during the regular season, along with a sparkling.927 save percentage and 1.89 goals-against average.

Saturday the St. Louis Blues announced that they had signed Goalie Jordan Binnington to a 2-year contract worth $4.4 million per year. Binnington earned Rookie of the Month honours in February and March, and was named to the All-Rookie Team.

As a restricted free agent, Binnington avoided an arbitration hearing by agreeing to the deal on Saturday, as NHL.com reported. "I'm excited and motivated to keep doing my job and keep bringing success to the St. Louis Blues organization".

The St. Louis Blues have locked up the most important player on their team in Jordan Binnington.

Sabathia expected to start for the Yankees against Rays
Aaron Hicks had tied it at 3 in the top of the ninth for the Yankees , homering on a 2-2, two-out pitch from Colin Poche (2-1). Morton struck out 12, including six straight at one point, and finished the game by fanning 10 over his last four innings.

The Stanley Cup-winning netminder's new deal will pay him $4.4 million per season.

Fabbri, drafted 21st overall by St. Louis in 2014, had a strong rookie campaign in 2015-16, but has struggled with knee injuries since - including one that forced him to miss the entire 2017-18 season. During the Stanley Cup Playoffs Binnington went 16-10 with one shutout to become the Blues first goalie to win the Stanley Cup.

While it seems very little for such a key player, it's important to note that last season was his first season in the National Hockey League and he still needs to build up a resume. He finished with 12 goals, 20 assists and 32 points - all career highs - last season.
