BOSTON (WPRI) ─ Torey Krug is no longer a Boston Bruin.

The St. Louis Blues announced Friday that they signed the defenseman to a 7-year contract worth $45.5 million. Krug will count $6.5 million against the salary cap through the 2026-27 season.

Krug, 29, started his career in the NHL with the Bruins in 2012. Since then, he’s played in 523 NHL games while recording 337 points.

While with the Bruins, Krug lost to the Blues in the Stanley Cup Final in 2019, in which he famously delivered a helmetless hit to Robert Thomas during the final game.

The Bruins took to social media soon after the deal was finalized to thank Krug for everything he’s done for the organization.
