The agent for David Perron says the winger has signed a $7.5 million, two-year deal with the St. Louis Blues.

Allan Walsh told The Associated Press that Perron signed the deal that carries a cap hit of $3.75 million over the next two seasons.

Perron spent last season with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Anaheim Ducks and had 12 goals and 24 assists. He’s returning to St. Louis, which drafted him 26th overall in 2007.

In 570 NHL games, Perron has 141 goals and 191 assists.

Perron helps replace right wing Troy Brouwer, who became an unrestricted free agent.
