The St. Louis Blues signed defenseman Colton Parayko to a $27.5 million, five-year contract just before the sides were set to go to arbitration on Thursday.

Only sharpshooting winger Vladimir Tarasenko is signed longer as the Blues have captain Alex Pietrangelo, Jay Bouwmeester and Parayko locked up as their top three on defense.

"Colton coming on the scene the last couple of years gives us a real good right side now obviously with Alex and Colton for a number of years moving forward," general manager Doug Armstrong said. "Nice to have him in the fold for five years and our captain for at least three more. It's a good feeling."
