Blues Expected to Name Pietrangelo Captain


Blues Expected to Name Pietrangelo Captain

Press Conference Coming on Thursday Afternoon

The St. Louis Blues are promoting a “major” announcement that is coming down the line tomorrow afternoon at the Scottrade Center.

That major announcement is expected to be the naming of Alex Pietrangelo as the Blues’ captain for the 2016-17 season. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch was first to report.


It had been speculated going all the way back to the middle of last season that Pietrangelo was in-line to become the Captain-in-waiting behind David Backes. Once Backes departed St. Louis, Pietrangelo’s name naturally rose to the top of the list.

The 26-year old will be entering his seventh full season on the big club, and coming off a year where the Blues were on the cusp of the Stanley Cup Finals.
