St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has re-signed defenseman Tyson Strachan to a one-year contract.

Strachan, 25, played in eight games for the Blues last season, recording two assists and four penalty minutes.  In addition, the 6-2, 215-pound defenseman skated in 65 games with Peoria, collecting 26 points (five goals, 21 assists) along with 75 penalty minutes. 

The Melfort, Saskatchewan native was originally drafted by Carolina in the fifth round, 137th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
