The St. Louis Blues have reportedly re-signed defenceman Carlo Colaiacovo to a two-year contract worth $4.25 million.

The deal was reported Monday by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The newspaper stated that neither the Blues nor Colaiacovo will comment until the deal becomes official.

Colaiacovo, an unrestricted free agent, scored seven goals and 25 assists in his first full season with the Blues. He came over to St. Louis from the Toronto Maple Leafs along with Alexander Steen for Lee Stempniak in Nov. 2008.

The 27-year old just completed his seventh NHL campaign. He has posted 22 goals and 72 assists in 241 career games between Toronto and St. Louis.

He was originally Toronto's first round pick (17th overall) in the 2001 draft.
