Jaden Schwartz Signed By The Blues

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has signed their first overall draft pick in 2010, Jaden Schwartz, to an entry level contract.  Schwartz will join the Blues in Chicago when they visit the Blackhawks tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m CT.

“Jaden had an excellent college career and we are excited that he is ready to make the jump to the NHL,” said Armstrong.  “He will add depth to the skill level on our team and give us some options as we begin this stretch drive.”

“It’s been a dream of mine to play in the NHL and I’m excited to be able to do it as a St. Louis Blue,” said Schwartz.  “The Blues are having a terrific season and I will do whatever they need me to do to contribute.”

Schwartz, 19, is currently in his sophomore season at Colorado College leading the Tigers with 41 points including 15 goals and 26 assists in 30 games.  During his freshman year, the 5’10, 193-pound forward posted 47 points (17 goals, 30 assists) in 30 games leading the nation in freshman scoring average with 1.56 points per game.

The Wilcox, Saskatchewan native was originally drafted by the Blues in the first round, 14th overall, of the 2010 Entry Draft.

Very mature player for his age - should pay immediate dividends for a team that is already playing well.
