Local nine-year-old Kathryn Lankau receives a special present from Blues forward Jaden Schwartz

Meet Kathryn Lankau.

She's a beautiful nine-year-old girl in an abnormal situation. Four years ago, Kathryn's father, Russell, fell ill with flu-like symptoms. For nearly a week, he suffered through vomiting, chills and pain before it became too much to handle.

At 4 a.m. on November 11, 2012, Kathryn's older sister rushed Russell to the hospital for emergency attention. A short time later, his heart stopped. For 45 minutes, the hospital frantically attempted to resuscitate him without success.

Russell passed away due to septic shock. He was 40 years old.

Steen's contract extension

Steen sticks around until 2021

Alexander Steen signs a four-year contract extension with the Blues, which will keep him in St. Louis through the 2020-21 season

  • 00:46 •

ST. LOUIS - Alexander Steen will be a member of the St. Louis Blues for the forseeable future.

Steen signed a four-year contract extension worth $23 million on Friday, the first day of training camp. The 32-year-old forward, who had one year remaining on his current three-year deal, is now signed with the Blues through the 2020-21 season.

This marks the second time Steen could have elected to test the market as an unrestricted free agent, but instead chose to sign an extension to remain a Blue.

"It would have been extremely tough to leave here, but now I don't have to worry about that," Steen said Friday. "I don't think I could have seen myself throwing another (jersey) over my shoulders right now. It takes some time to grow attached like this, and for me, it's nothing that I take lightly and I'm extremely happy to be here."

"St. Louis has become home. I've been here eight years," Steen added. "I've gotten to know a lot of people within hockey and outside hockey here. We seem to be spending less and less time in Sweden to make sure we get our time in here as well. It's been an incredible journey and St. Louis is definitely somewhere I see as home now."

Petro's WCH blog: The ticket dilemma

by Alex Pietrangelo / Exclusive to

St. Louis Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo is representing his country at the World Cup of Hockey, which is being held Sept. 17 through Oct. 1 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto. It's an exciting time for the 26-year-old - not just because he's playing for Team Canada, but because he gets to do so in front of his family and friends since the tournament is being hosted less than an hour from his hometown. Throughout the World Cup of Hockey, Pietrangelo will be keeping a blog exclusively for to share his experience of playing for Team Canada.

So what are you supposed to do when you have only six tickets to the World Cup of Hockey and way more than six friends and family members that want to go?

Here's what I did: I gave all six tickets to my parents and said "you guys figure it out!"

Hey - I don't want to be the bad guy!
