ST. LOUIS (AP) -The St. Louis Blues have exercised their contract option to keep coach Andy Murray through the 2010-11 season.
Blues president John Davidson announced the move Tuesday.
Murray led St. Louis to a 41-31-10 record last season, including a 25-9-7 second-half surge that put the Blues in the playoffs for the first time since 2004.
Murray became coach in St. Louis in December 2006. He coached the Los Angeles Kings from 1999 through 2006. He is 316-261-121 for his career, including 101-85-32 for the Blues.
