Zach Sanford and the St. Louis Blues agreed to terms on a two-year, $3 million deal on Monday, allowing the forward to avoid arbitration.
Sanford, 24, registered eight goals and 12 assists in 60 regular-season games in 2018-19. He added four points (one goal, three assists) in eight playoff games as St. Louis won its first Stanley Cup.
The Washington Capitals selected Sanford in the second round of the 2013 NHL Draft. They traded him to St. Louis in February 2017 with forward Brad Malone and two draft picks for defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk and goalie Pheonix Copley.
In 99 games with the Blues and Capitals, Sanford has 28 points (12 goals, 16 assists).
