The St. Louis Blues re-signed center Tyler Bozak to a one-year deal worth the league minimum $750,000, the club announced Tuesday.

Bozak is taking a significant pay cut from his previous contract, which paid him $5 million annually.

The 35-year-old veteran remained productive during an injury-riddled 2020-21 campaign, producing at a 0.55 point per game clip with five goals and 12 assists in 31 contests. He averaged a career-low 14:55 per game.

Bozak, as he's been throughout his 12-year career, was highly efficient in the faceoff circle last year, winning 56.8% of his draws.

The Regina, Saskatchewan, product will be entering his fourth campaign with the Blues after spending his first nine NHL seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
