St. Louis Blues general manager Doug Armstrong remains confident he will be able to sign defenseman Alex Pietrangelo.

The 23-year-old Pietrangelo, fresh off his third full season with the Blues, is a restricted free agent.

His previous contract, a three-year entry-level deal, came with an NHL salary of $787,500 in the final two years, according to Capgeek.com.

It also paid him $2.35 million per season in bonus.

In 47 regular season games in 2013, Pietrangelo scored five goals and had 24 points. He’s been a consistent point-producer on the Blues’ blue line since he became a full-time member of the St. Louis lineup.

“We are going to do what is necessary to get him signed,” said Armstrong, as per a tweet from Lou Korac, who covers the Blues for NHL.com.

Earlier on Friday, the Blues agreed to terms with another of their restricted free agents – forward Chris Stewart to a two-year, $8.3 million deal.

    2 year 8.3 for Stewart… 1 year 8.3 for pieteangelo sounds about right

    I doubt he will get a long term deal. 3 years 18 million would be good I think.

    If I’m Lou lamoriello, I’m putting together an offer sheet

      and Lou would be wasting his time. Army has repeatedly said ” we will match ANY offer sheet on petro”
      Petro isn’t going anywhere, just a matter of working out a contract that’s agreeable for both sides.
