Barret Jackman may not be back with the Blues next season.
He can become an unrestricted free agent in July and might be permitted to test the open market. "I'm not going to sit here and toot my own horn, but I felt I played well," Jackman said. "I don't think my play's dropped off year after year. I still feel like I help the team. With the cap issues and things like that.

Barret Jackman's playing time has gone down this season.

Jackman is averaging just 17:35 minutes per contest, which would be a career-low for him if this trend continues.

With that in mind, it would probably take an injury for Jackman's role to increase significantly.
