Blues sign Langenbrunner to 1-year contract, trade Crombeen

ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues have signed Jamie Langenbrunner to a one-year contract and traded another forward, B.J. Crombeen, to Tampa Bay for future draft picks.

The 36-year-old Langenbrunner had six goals and 18 assists in 70 games last season. The 17-year veteran played in his 1,000th career game last season and has added leadership to a team that posted 109 points.

The 27-year-old Crombeen was traded along with the Blues' fifth-round draft pick for the Lightning's fourth-round picks in 2013 and 2014. Crombeen had a goal and two assists along with 71 penalty minutes in 40 games last season.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
