St. Louis Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo was one of eight players to receive a qualifying offer from the club, it was announced Tuesday.

Pietrangelo, set to become a restricted free agent Friday, was the Blues’ first-round pick (No. 4) at the 2008 NHL Draft. The 23-year-old had five goals, 19 assists and an even rating in 47 games during the 2012-13 season.

Chris Stewart was the Blues’ leading scorer in 2012-13. The 25-year-old right wing had 18 goals, 18 assists and 40 penalty minutes. Six of his goals were scored on the power play.

Also receiving qualifying offers from the Blues were goaltender Jake Allen; forwards Evgeny Grachev, Philip McRae and Tyler Shattock; and defensemen Kris Russell and Cade Fairchild.

The offers will allow the Blues to retain the negotiating rights for each player when free agency begins Friday.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
