Barbashev signed a two-year, $4.5 million extension with the Blues on Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Barbashev's high-energy style is more useful on the ice than in the fantasy realm, though the 25-year-old Russian occasionally gets elevated into a top-six role to balance out the Blues' lines. He's getting a nice raise after just finishing out a two-year, $2.95 million contract.
