Kiru just finished a breakout season in which he scored 27 goals and 48 assists for a career-high 75 points in 74 games. The 24-year-old was selected to play in the 2022 NHL All-Star Game with a brilliant display of skill by winning the competition with the fastest skater.

The Toronto native had 47 points in 99 career NHL games until last year.

Selected by St. Louis with the 35th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, Kiro made his NHL debut on October 4, 2018 after playing for the Sarnia Sting of the Ontario Hockey League between 2014 and 2018.

“It’s pretty incredible” Kiru said. “It’s something you’ve been working for your whole life and finally getting this (long-term deal) seems amazing. This is a special moment for me and my family.”

Kiru was a member of Team Canada at the 2018 World Junior Championships, helping the country to a gold medal in Buffalo.

Kiro’s new contract will come into effect at the start of the 2023-2024 season, as he is currently in the last year of a two-year, $5.6 million bridge contract he signed ahead of last season. The term and money under the transaction are identical to the extension of the contract signed by teammate Robert Thomas in July.
