Blues give veteran forward Nichol one-year deal
Veteran forward Scott Nichol found a new home Tuesday, agreeing to a one-year contract with the St. Louis Blues.

"Scott is an experienced, honest player and an excellent face off guy," St. Louis General Manager Doug Armstrong said. "He will provide a positive veteran presence to complement our current group."

Nichol, 36, had 4 goals and 7 points in 56 games this past season for San Jose. A former 11th-round pick by Buffalo in the 1993 Entry Draft, the 5-foot-9, 180-pound forward has played 552 games over 11 seasons with the Sabres, Flames, Blackhawks, Predators and Sharks, compiling 52 goals, 118 points and 808 penalty minutes.
Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
