Report: The salary breakdown for Torey Krug's Blues contract was originally published on NBC Sports Boston
Former Boston Bruins defender Torey Krug made a well-deserved payday at the start of the NHL Free Agency by agreeing to sign a long-term deal with the St. Louis Blues.
Both sides signed a seven-year contract on Friday valued at $ 45.5 million ($ 6.5 million per season).

In addition to a nice increase from his last deal - a four-year $ 21 million pact with Boston - Krug also received some no-trade protection from the Blues.
TSN's Pierre LeBrun reported Saturday morning on the salary and no-trade details in Krug's contract, which can be seen below:
Krug's landing with the Blues certainly came as a surprise to some people given St. Louis' situation on the blue line, with Captain Alex Pietrangelo also an unreserved free agent. But when Krug looked at the roster and the overall situation, he admitted it suited him really well.
Krug says he is "not close" to staying in Boston
"To be honest, it wasn't to be expected, but as the day went on it seemed to fit more and more perfectly," Krug told Blue Note Productions during his introductory blues conference call on Friday night. "Going through some of the things available, with the squad the Blues have and the core group, it just seemed like a match made in heaven."
Pietrangelo and Krug were the # 1 and # 2 defenders and entered the free hand on Friday. Some of the best free agent blueliners are still available, including Pietrangelo, Tyson Barrie, Sami Vatanen, Travis Hamonic, Zdeno Chara, and Erik Gustafsson.
