The St. Louis Blues say they have signed star for­ward Vladimir Tarasenko to an eight-year, $60 mil­lion con­tract. Gen­eral man­ager Doug Armstrong an­nounced the move Tues­day, lock­ing up the 23-year-old Tarasenko af­ter a sea­son in which he made his first ca­reer All-Star game and was 10th in the NHL with 73 points, in­clud­ing 37 goals, to go along with a plus-27 rat­ing. He was the youngest Blues player with a 30-goal sea­son since Bren­dan Shana­han in 1991-92. “Happy to be with you and carry a note on my chest,” Tarasenko tweeted Tues­day. “Let’s bring the cup to St. Louis!”
