ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Blues have signed winger B.J. Crombeen to a two-year contract extension.

The team announced the deal Wednesday.

Crombeen would have been a restricted free agent on July 1. The 25-year-old has spent the past three seasons with the Blues, including a career high 80 games last season. He registered seven goals and 14 points. Crombeen has 26 goals and 53 points in 248 career games over four seasons.

Crombeen joins forwards Patrik Berglund and Vladimir Sobotka and defensemen Roman Polak and Nikita Nikitin to resign with the team before becoming restricted free agents.

Crombeen was drafted by the Dallas Stars in the second round (54th overall) of the 2003 NHL draft. The Blues claimed him off waivers in 2008.

The 25 year old played for the Idaho Steelheads during the 2006-2007 season, for 22 games.  During his time with the Steelies Crombeen scored five goals and five assists.
