Blues re-sign forward Ryan Reaves
The St. Louis Blues announced Monday that they have re-signed forward Ryan Reaves to a one-year, two-way contract.

Reaves, 23, skated in 76 games last season for the Peoria Rivermen, the Blues’ American Hockey League affiliate, collecting 11 points (4 goals, 7 assists) while leading the team with an AHL career-high 167 penalty minutes. The 6-1, 225-pound forward has spent the last three seasons in Peoria, playing in 164 games, registering 35 points (16 goals, 19 assists) and 343 penalty minutes.  
The Winnipeg native was originally drafted by the Blues in the fifth round (No. 156) in the 2005 Entry Draft.
Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
