St. Louis Blues sign GM Doug Armstrong to 5-year extension

Sometimes Twitter finds Wings news for me, and sometimes it finds something completely different. Per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Jeremy Rutherford, the Blues have made a big personnel move in terms of their front office, inking GM Doug Armstrong to a 5-year contract extension:

The Blues have locked up the NHL’s reigning general manager of the year with a long-term contract.

Doug Armstrong has signed a five-year extension, a league source has told the Post-Dispatch. The deal will take Armstrong, whose contract was set to expire on June 30, through the 2017-18 season with the club. Financial terms weren’t immediately known.

The Blues are expected to announce the deal at a press conference today at Scottrade Center.

Armstrong, 48, joined the Blues in 2008 as the team’s vice president of player personnel, after spending 17 years with the Dallas/Minnesota organization. Following two seasons in St. Louis, Armstrong was named the 11th GM in Blues’ history in July 2010, replacing Larry Pleau.
