Blues sign Lapierre to 2-year deal, give one-year deal to Aucoin

ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues signed free agent forward Maxim Lapierre to a two-year contract and gave forward Keith Aucoin a one-year deal.

The 28-year-old Lapierre had four goals and six assists in 48 games with Vancouver, and appeared in four playoff games. The 34-year-old Aucoin had six goals and six assists in 41 games with the Islanders.

St. Louis also signed forwards Mark Mancari and Alexandre Bolduc to one-year, two-way contracts coming off high-scoring seasons in the AHL. The Blues drafted Bolduc in the fourth round in 2003.

The 27-year-old Mancari had 61 points in 76 games at Rochester, while the 28-year-old Bolduc had 51 points in 56 games for Portland.

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.
