Blues Say Bye-Bye to Alex Pietrangelo, Hello to Torey Krug


Oh, to be a fly on the wall the first day the St. Louis Blues assemble for training camp in preparation of the 2020-21 season. “Hello, Robert Thomas,” Torey Krug might say to one of his new teammates. “I’m Torey Krug. You may remember me as the runaway kamikaze freight train that chased you down and knocked you into the next week in the final a couple of years ago. Or maybe you don’t remember.”

Knowing the way hockey guys are, the two of them have probably already exchanged texts and talked about there being no hard feelings. And knowing hockey guys, they’ll probably be the best of friends because, hey, they’re going to have a long time to forge a bond after Krug signed a seven-year deal with the Blues worth $45.5 million.
