Talk about a smooooooth deal.

As first reported by Daily Faceoff's Frank Seravalli, Robert Thomas has signed an eight-year deal with an AAV of $8.12 million. 

Drafted in the first round in 2017, Thomas is a solid two-way center that battled injuries early in his career, but broke out for a 20-goal, 77-point regular season this year. In the three years before that, Thomas had just 87 points to his credit. A two-way master, Thomas is cemented as a huge piece of St. Louis' future as the team hopes to remain in Stanley Cup contention.

The deal will not kick in until the conclusion of his current $2.8-million AAV deal that goes through 2022-23.
