Blues sign general manager to extension

Wednesday, January 16, 2013 | 9:11 p.m. CST

ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Blues, coming off a 109-point season, have signed general manager Doug Armstrong to a five-year contract extension.

Armstrong was the NHL general manager of the year last season when the Blues won their first Central Division title since 2000, tied for the second-best point total in the NHL and were the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference for the playoffs.

Armstrong was named GM in July 2010 after two seasons as vice president of player personnel. During his tenure, the Blues have added coach Ken Hitchcock and the goalie tandem of Brian Elliott and Jaroslav Halak, who won the Jennings Trophy after combining for a league-leading 15 shutouts.

The Blues are 87-60-22 in Armstrong's two seasons. Before coming to St. Louis, Armstrong spent 17 years with the Dallas Stars.
