St. Louis Blues President John Davidson announced today the club has exercised the option for Blues' Head Coach Andy Murray through the 2010-11 season.

"Andy has done a terrific job for our hockey club over the past three seasons," said Davidson. "We're happy to have him in the fold for the next two seasons and continue to guide a competitive team."

In the 2008-09 campaign, Murray guided the Blues to a 41-31-10 record and a 25-9-7 record in the second half of the season which led the NHL, jumping from 15th place in the Western Conference standings to the #6 seed and returning the club to the playoffs for the first time in five years.

The Blues' playoff surge was one of the finest in NHL history earning nearly 59 percent of their points since January 19, the highest such rate by any playoff team since 1940.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
