After having four picks last year, St. Louis Blues scouts are excited to go into the 2014 NHL Draft with nine selections.
"It's a good thing for our staff, because you travel all year and you get to this point and you want to pick," Blues director of amateur scouting Bill Armstrong told the team website. "The more picks you have, the more excited you get. Our staff is well-prepared. They've traveled the world and they're excited about, as we say in the business, taking a swing."
