ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues have re-signed forward Vladimir Sobotka to a three-year, $3.9 million extension.

Hensick and Chris Porter, who would have been unrestricted free agents.

Sobotka, a native of Czech Republic, set career highs in points (29), goals (seven), assists (22) and games played (65) this season with the Blues, his first since being acquired from Boston.
