Defenceman Barret Jackman won't be testing the free agent market in July after all.

The St. Louis Blues announced on Monday that the defenceman has signed a three-year, $9.5 million contract.

"Barret has been a solid leader for our club, on and off the ice, and we're happy to have him in the fold for the next three years," Blues executive vice president and general manager Doug Armstrong said in a statement. "He's a staple of the organization and the community and his positive influence on our young core has and will remain an invaluable asset."

"St. Louis is our home and my family and I are excited to be staying," said Jackman. "I am proud of the progress we made this season but our fans deserve a championship and our team will not be satisfied until we achieve that goal."

Jackman, 31, dressed in 81 games for the Blues last season recording 13 points (one goal, 12 assists) and 57 penalty minutes while tying for second on the club with a +20 rating.
