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

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.
