Steen’s New Home

It looks like Alexander Steen has find a home with the up and coming St. Louis Blues. Earlier this summer, he signed a four year extension with the team; and he has recently been named an assistant captain. That speaks volumes of the Blues faith in Steen as their other A’s are David Backes and Erik Johnson, two players that are going to be key to their continued progression.

Steen was one of the lone bright spots on a team that was full of offensive disappointments, finishing with 47 points in 68 games, many of those coming in the second half of the season. While the Blues top six is crowded, it looks like he will probably fit in on the second line and should be able to produce with the number of talented wingers they have.

Hey good job Toronto. Lee Stempniak for Steen and Carlo. Great deal for the team.
