The Blues have locked up another key restricted free agent.

On Wednesday, the club announced a contract extension for defenseman Kevin Shattenkirka four-year, $17 million deal with an average annual cap hit of $4.25 million.

Shattenkirk, 24, scored 23 points in 48 games last season, emerging as a key part of St. Louis’ blueline with another pending RFA — Alex Pietrangelo, who has yet to agree to a new deal.

In 2011-12, Shattenkirk tied a career-high in points (43) and finished 18th in Norris Trophy voting.

A former Boston University standout, Shattenkirk was taken 14th overall by Colorado at the 2007 NHL Entry Draft and came to St. Louis in 2011 as part of the deal that saw Chris Stewart also head to the Blues (along with a second-round pick that would become Ty Rattie.)

In exchange, the Blues sent defenseman Erik Johnson, forward Jay McClement and a first-round pick (that would become Duncan Siemens) to Colorado.

As for other RFAs, St. Louis signed Patrik Berglund to a one-year, $3.25 million deal on Tuesday, but still needs to secure deals for Pietrangelo, Stewart and Kris Russell.

      The Shatt … ‘n Kirk … in the same room? Is that even possible?

      Sounds like a lost Star Trek episode!

    Colorado got Erik Johnson, Jay McClement, and Duncan Siemens.
    St. Louis got Shattenkirk, Stewart, and Ty Rattie

    No wonder Colorado is picking first this year

    Does Duncan Siemens have any potential? Don’t know anything about the kid.
