Add Zach Sanford to the list of restricted free agents signed by the St. Louis Blues over the last few days.
Sanford and the Blues have agreed on a one-year, $2 million contract, the team announced Wednesday. He follows newly acquired Pavel Buchnevich as well as returning Blues Ivan Barbashev, Dakota Joshua and Jordan Kyrou as RFAs now under contract. Only Robert Thomas has not yet agreed to terms.
Sanford, 26, tallied 16 points (10 goals, six assists) in 52 regular-season games last season. The forward often went long stretches without scoring a point, including nine-game droughts from March 13 through April 3 and April 10 through May 5.
Sanford has scored 74 points (38 goals, 36 assists) in 209 career regular-season games. A member of the 2019 Stanley Cup championship team and native of Massachusetts, he scored a goal in St. Louis' decisive Game 7 win over the Boston Bruins.
