Blues award GM Armstrong 5-year extension
Doug Armstrong won't be leaving St. Louis.
Armstrong was already on the books for the upcoming season and had an option for the following one, according to The Athletic's Jeremy Rutherford.
The longtime executive, who turned 57 on Friday, has been with the Blues since 2008 and took over as their GM two years later. He built the club that won the Stanley Cup in 2018-19.
"As manager, you never know how long you'll last in these jobs, sometimes they're a little fickle. It's been an honor to have been the manager for the Blues for this long and I look forward to continuing that," Armstrong said.
In February, Hockey Canada named him GM for its 2022 Olympic men's hockey team.
