ST. LOUIS - Blues Head Coach Craig Berube, who became the first coach in Blues history to bring a Stanley Cup to St. Louis, was named Sports Personality of the Year at the Jack Buck Awards at the Missouri Athletic Club on Dec. 5.

Previous winners of the award include Vladimir Tarasenko (2016), Al MacInnis (1999), Brett Hull (1990) and Yadier Molina (2017).

"When I see all the past winners, (like) Bob Gibson and a number of guys, they're legends," Berube said in his acceptance speech. "(But) the players, they win games. Let's not forget that. You win because of players. Our players bought into a team-first mindset and a work-ethic mindset. That's what our team is based upon, hard work and team. They bought into that and they're Stanley Cup champions because of it."

A one-hour replay of the Jack Buck Awards, which includes Berube's speech and Bob Plager receiving the Legends Award, will air Thursday, Dec. 12 at 5:30 p.m. on FOX Sports Midwest.
