Blues relieve Rick Wamsley as coach of AHL farm team
St. Louis Blues President John Davidson announced Thursday that the club has relieved Rick Wamsley as coach of the Peoria Rivermen, the Blues' AHL. No replacement was announced.

"I would like to thank Rick for his dedication and hard work for the St. Louis Blues and wish him and his family nothing but success in the future,” Davidson said in a statement.

Wamsley was named as Peoria's interim coach for Peoria on Jan. 2, 2010, when Rivermen coach Davis Payne was promoted to interim coach of the Blues.

Wamsley, a former NHL goaltender, joined the Blues as an assistant coach/goaltending coach on July 7, 2006. 





Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
