The St. Louis Blues announced Monday that they have signed veteran winger Brenden Morrow to a one-year contract worth $1.5 Million. The former Dallas Stars Captain should provide scoring depth, toughness and leadership to an already formidable St. Louis team.
Pittsburgh acquired Morrow at last year’s trade deadline with hopes that the he would help bring the Stanley Cup back to the Steel City. Morrow will now reunite with his former coach, Ken Hitchcock, and join a St. Louis team that has bowed out in both of the past two playoffs to the Los Angeles Kings.
At 34, Morrow’s most productive years are likely in the rear-view mirror, but the Blues hope that Morrow will boost his contributions as he plays for a serious contender. Last year, Morrow produced only 11 points in 29 games for the loley Stars before increasing his production to 14 points in 15 games for the Penguins.
