ST. LOUIS – Oskar Sundqvist, a gritty forward and a key piece in the St. Louis Blues’ 2019 Stanley Cup championship, will rejoin the roster next season.
Sundqvist agreed to a one-year, $775,000 contact with the Blues, a deal the team officially announced Wednesday. Sundqvist also hinted at the deal Wednesday morning via Twitter.
The 29-year-old is gearing for his second stint with the team. He returns to the Blues after spending five seasons with the team from 2017-22. During that time, he collected 35 goals and 48 assists over 242 regular-season games.
Sundqvist was traded to the Detroit Red Wings in a deal that brought Nick Leddy to the Blues last year. He played for Detroit and the Minnesota Wild before becoming a free agent and signing his next contract with the Blues.
Sundqvist joins MacKenzie MacEachern and Sammy Blais in the likes of 2019 Stanley Cup champions who had a brief stop elsewhere in recent years before returning to St. Louis.
