The St. Louis Blues signed forward Patrik Berglund to a five-year, $19.25-million contract extension, the club announced Friday.

Berglund was a pending unrestricted free agent carrying a cap hit of $3.7 million. His new deal is incredibly team friendly, with an average annual value of only $3.85 million.

The extension includes a partial no-trade clause, according to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun.

The Blues were able to ink the 28-year-old to a long-term deal with just a marginal raise despite the fact he ranks second on the club behind Vladimir Tarasenko with 17 goals.

Kevin Shattenkirk and Scottie Upshall are now the Blues’ only remaining pending UFAs.
