Blues agree to terms with Winchester

Unrestricted free agent agrees to one-year $700,000 contract

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues have come to terms with unrestricted free agent Brad Winchester, signing the winger to a one-year contract on Friday.

Winchester agreed to a reported $700,000 contract. He made $800,000 last season.

The 6-foot-5, 231-pound forward played in 64 games last season, recording three goals and five assists along with 108 penalty minutes.

Winchester, 29, set career highs with the Blues in goals (13) and points (21) during the 2008-09 season.

The Blues are Winchester's third team, having previously played in Edmonton, where he was the Oilers' second-round draft pick in 2000, and Dallas, where he played for Blues general manager Doug Armstrong, who held the same position with the Stars.
