The St. Louis Blues have signed forward Magnus Paajarvi to a one-year, one-way contract, the club announced on Wednesday.
According to Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the deal is worth $700,000.
Paajarvi filed for player-elected arbitration prior to Sunday’s deadline.
The 24-year-old split last season between the St. Louis Blues and the American Hockey League’s Chicago Wolves.
In 10 games with the Blues, Paajarvi registered an assist and a minus-2 rating. He scored 11 goals and 18 assists in 36 AHL games.
Paajarvi was acquired by St. Louis from the Edmonton Oilers in the David Perron trade in July 2013.
