The St. Louis Blues have signed Russian forward Klim Kostin to a three-year, entry-level contract.
Kostin is not considered NHL-ready, but the AHL is an option for next season.
“If he’s ready for the American Hockey League, that would be great,” said Blues GM Doug Armstrong, per the Post-Dispatch. “If not, we’ll have to find a different option for him.”
St. Louis received the 31st pick in the Ryan Reaves trade with Pittsburgh.
