Jaden Schwartz and the St. Louis Blues have finally come to terms. The two-year, $4.7 million deal seems like a low at first glance, seeing as the restricted free agent scored 25 goals and 56 points last year. When you look at his position, though, it’s no wonder the Blues got him for just $2.35 […]

Following the Blues 4-2 loss to the Dallas Stars Saturday night,which dropped St. Louis to 0-3-1 in the preseason, general manager Doug Armstrong trimmed his roster by five.
Heading to the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League are forwards Ty Rattie, John McCarthy and Philip McRae along with defenseman Brent Regner.
Following their loss to the Dallas Stars in Kansas City, the St. Louis Blues announced they had trimmed their roster down to 33. The five players sent down to the AHL were Ty Rattie, Jordan Binnington, John McCarthy, Brent Regner and Philip McRae.

ST. LOUIS — Restricted free-agent left wing Jaden Schwartz signed a two-year contract with the St. Louis Blues on Saturday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“We are excited to have Jaden in the fold for the next two seasons,” general manager Doug Armstrong said in a statement. “He is an exciting young talent that will play a key role in the success of our club.”
The Jaden Schwartz contract drama is officially over. As the 2014-15 opener on October 9th looms ever closer, the Blues gave Schwartz a new two-year, $4.7 million deal which will keep him with the team through 2015-16. The new extension – one which we can definitely refer to as a bridge contract – will pay Schwartz $2 million this season and $2.7 million next year.

ST. LOUIS -- Much like the rest of his veteran teammates, goalie Brian Elliott appears to still be shaking off the rust as he prepares for his first season as a No. 1 goalie.
It's far too early to raise any serious alarms for anyone after three preseason games, even if the Blues did lose all three by a goal. Coach Ken Hitchcock certainly hasn't been pleased, but don't...
ST. LOUIS -- More possession plus more playmakers equals more scoring opportunities and fewer chances for opponents.
That formula offers the simplest explanation of what the Blues are hoping to get from their newfound depth at center. The offseason additions of Paul Stastny and Jori Lehtera should make things even better for a team that posted a +57 goal differential in the 2013...
ST. LOUIS -- When Blues coach Ken Hitchcock reviewed the past two seasons, he found himself confronted with a harsh reality. Even though St. Louis had been at or near its best in the Stanley Cup playoffs, it simply wasn't good enough.
It's clear that injuries and challenging first-round matchups played a factor, but those excuses don't really interest the veteran coach...

Mueller went to Switzerland last season, signing with Kloten, which he led in scoring 26 goals and 46 points in 49 games, ranking third in the Swiss league.
“You talk to anyone that puts the puck in the net, you get 20 goals anywhere, you’re feeling good,” Mueller said. “I haven’t felt that in a long time....
Not too many teenagers get to give a pregame speech to an NHL team, but on Sunday night Brendan Woods, 17, got that honor. Brendan spoke to the St. Louis Blues prior to their preseason game against the Columbus Blue Jackets at the Nationwide Arena.

Miller struggled at the end of the regular season and in the Blues’ six-game Round 1 playoff series loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. He left the team in free agency to join the...
