ST. LOUIS --- Blues Head Coach Craig Berube will have another trophy to hoist.

After helping bring St. Louis their first-ever Stanley Cup, Berube was named the 2019 Missouri Athletic Club (MAC) Sports Personality of the Year and will receive the honor at the Jack Buck Awards on Dec. 5.

The MAC has been celebrating St. Louis sports personalities since 1970 and now Berube joins Vladimir Tarasenko (2016), Al MacInnis (1999) and Brett Hull (1990) on the list of Blues who have won the award, which most recently was given to St. Louis Cardinals' pitcher Miles Mikolas (2018) and Cardinals' catcher Yadier Molina (2017).

In 1970, St. Louis sportscaster Jack Buck created the award ceremony and served as the Master of Ceremonies for the first 32 years. In 2002, the name of the dinner was officially changed to "The Jack Buck Sports Awards" following Bucks' final appearance in 2001.

KMOX Sports Director Tom Ackerman will host the 50th Annual Jack Buck Awards, sponsored by Maryville University. Tickets are available for purchase on the Missouri Athletic Club website or by calling 314-539-4470.
