The St. Louis Blues have signed Robert Thomas to a two-year, $2.8 million deal. This is a bridge contract as Thomas has yet to break out of his shell and is full of promise.

Just 22 years old, this 20th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft just ran out of his three-year entry-level contract, as he has shown some nice skills.
