Blues activate defenseman Redden

The St. Louis Blues activated defenseman Wade Redden, making the veteran blueliner a possibility for their next game, Thursday against the Nashville Predators.

Redden signed a one-year contract with the Blues on Sunday after his contract was bought out by the New York Rangers.

To make room on the roster, the Blues sent defenseman Ian Cole to their American Hockey League team, the Peoria Rivermen. Cole had one assist and two penalty minutes in three games this season.

Quote of the Day

It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
