St. Louis Blues president John Davidson re-signed from the team Friday, according to NHL.com. Davidson, 59, had three years left on his four-year contract, but had a stipulation that he could leave if the team was sold. Tom Stillman's purchase of the Blues was approved by the league in May. "We would like to thank JD for his commitment and dedication to the Blues organization over the past six seasons," Stillman said in a statement. "He has been instrumental in revitalizing the Blues franchise and has built a strong foundation for our organization, which will ensure the club's success well into the future. He has also developed one of the top teams in the game today." Davidson, who was a broadcaster for the team, took the president job in 2006. The Blues rebuilt under Davidson and won the Central Division last season, finishing second in the Western Conference and reaching the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They were eliminated by the Los Angeles Kings. "St. Louis has been nothing but outstanding to me and my family and we have enjoyed every minute here," Davidson said in a statement. "Although we did not accomplish the ultimate goal, I am proud of where this team is on and off the ice, and they are in excellent hands with this management team." Davidson interviewed with the Columbus Blue Jackets on May 29 for an unspecified position in their front office, according to the Columbus Dispatch. "I'd meet with them again, absolutely," Davidson told the Dispatch on Friday. "We had a very productive discussion, just sharing thoughts and getting an understanding for what they feel about their franchise. I liked what I heard from them, and I liked what I saw that day." He also said he had no immediate plans, but was open to helping manage a team or going back into broadcasting.
