Blues, Leopold strike deal on two-year contract

The SportsXchange

The St. Louis Blues reached agreement Wednesday with defenseman Jordan Leopold on a two-year contract worth $2.5 million per season, according to multiple reports.

Leopold joined the Blues in April after a trade with the Buffalo Sabres for two picks in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He played in 15 regular-season and six playoff games for St. Louis, scoring two points.

The 32-year-old Leopold was in the final year of a three-year contract with an annual salary of $3 million.

On Tuesday, the Blues put Kris Russell on waivers. That move and deal with the 10-year veterarn Leopold gives the team seven defenseman so far for next season.
