Blues sign former Dallas captain Brenden Morrow to one-year deal

ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues have signed forward Brenden Morrow to a one-year contract, reported by multiple media outlets to be worth US$1.5 million.

Morrow, who made $4.1 million last season, had 25 points (12 goals, 13 assists) in 44 games with Dallas and Pittsburgh last season. He added two goals and two assists in 14 playoff games with the Penguins.

Prior to joining Pittsburgh, Morrow had spent his entire 13-year career in Dallas, serving as the club's captain during the past seven seasons.

The six-foot, 210-pound native of Carlyle, Sask., has 249 goals, 293 assists and 1,222 penalty minutes in 850 career NHL games.

He has represented Canada internationally seven times and was part of the gold-medal winning team at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Morrow, 34, was originally selected by Dallas in the first round, 25th overall, of the 1997 draft.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
