The veteran forward saw enough potential for a bright future to put his name on a three-year contract.
“I thought it was a really good fit hockey wise,” said Kariya, who signed an US$18-million deal with the Blues on July 1 after spending the last two years with the Nashville Predators. “When (head coach) Andy Murray took over the team last year, in my opinion, they were a playoff team. And with the young group of players, you knew that they not only were going to be a good team now but two or three years down the road, they were going to be even better.”
