Pietrangelo will become free agent, could stay with Blues: report


TSN reported Friday that contract talks had broken off, but Pietrangelo said he has not ruled out re-signing with St. Louis.


"You spend your whole career somewhere, and to have a situation where you go through this, the reality kind of hits that there's a chance you're going to be wearing a different jersey one day.


Pietrangelo, the St. Louis captain since 2016, scored an NHL career-high 16 goals this season to tie Roman Josi of the Nashville Predators for second among defensemen, behind Zach Werenski of the Columbus Blue Jackets (20).


4 pick in the 2008 NHL Draft, scored 19 points (three goals, 16 assists) in 26 playoff games last season to help them win the Stanley Cup for the first time.


"[Alex is] a pretty dynamic player at both ends of the ice," Blues goalie Jordan Binnington said.


Alex Pietrangelo said he expects to become a free agent but has not ruled out re-signing with the St. Louis Blues, The Athletic reported Friday.
