ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Blues have signed forward Ryan Reaves to a four-year, $4.5 million contract extension.

General manager Doug Armstrong says in a release the rugged Reaves, at 6-foot-1 and 224 pounds, has developed into a "well-rounded player."

The 26-year-old Reaves has played in 26 games with two goals and three assists. He also has 65 penalty minutes, third-most on the team. He's in his fourth season, all with St. Louis.
