Mueller, Blues mutually agree to terminate contract

Wednesday, 10.08.2014 / 3:02 PM / News

The St. Louis Blues and forward Peter Mueller have mutually agreed to terminate his contract so that he can pursue other hockey options in Europe, according to the Blues' Twitter account.

Mueller, 26, had 24 goals and 46 points in 49 games for Kloten in Switzerland's top professional league last season. The native of Bloomington, Minn., signed a one-year, two-way contact with the Blues in July.

Following his season in Switzerland, the 6-foot-2, 209-pound forward was invited to play for the United States at the 2014 IIHF World Championship; he had one goal and four points in eight games.


Canadiens' Sekac takes long road to NHL debut

TORONTO -- Tomas Plekanec was asked a question about his new teammate and Czech countryman Jiri Sekac during Montreal Canadiens training camp. He quickly corrected his questioner.

"Oh, you mean Forrest Gump?" Plekanec asked, a wry smile on his face.

That was the nickname given to Sekac by a Czech newspaper after he set a new Canadiens record in the beep test, a grueling exercise that measures an athlete's maximum oxygen intake, or VO2, during rookie camp last month. The test essentially entails the player running through a number of stages for as long as he can.

Sekac kept running, just like Forrest Gump did in the movie of the same name, a nickname Plekanec was only too happy to share with anyone who would listen in the hopes it would stick.

"We're excited to have him back," left wing Scott Hartnell said. "It's good to see his goofy little face around the dressing room."

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.
