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

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.
