The St. Louis Blues have bolstered their forward group with the additions of centre Tyler Bozak and winger David Perron.

Bozak’s deal is for three years and $15 million.

In 81 games for the Leafs last season, Bozak put up 11 goals and 32 assists. It was a bit of a drop-off from the season before that when he registered 18 goals and 37 assists in three fewer games. In seven playoff games in the first round against the Boston Bruins, Bozak scored two goals and added two assists.

The 32-year-old has spent the last nine seasons with the Leafs and has appeared in 594 regular season games with the club after signing as an undrafted free agent out of college in 2009.

Perron is heading back for his third stint with the Blues and is coming off a strong season with the expansion Vegas Golden Knights. Perron had 16 goals and added a career-high 50 assists last season. Perron was selected by the NHL’s newest franchise from the Blues, where he was coming off a 46-point season. His career-high in goals came in 2013-14 when he scored 28 with the Edmonton Oilers.

Perron was in his second go-around with the Blues when he was selected by Vegas. He spent his first six seasons there after being selected in the first round (No. 26 overall) of the 2007 draft. He has also spent time with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Anaheim Ducks during his 11-year career.
