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.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
