Blues sign Berube to three-year contract
ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues scratched interim off of Craig Berube's name tag on Tuesday.
The Blues and Berube agreed to terms on a three-year deal, officially naming him head coach.
The former interim coach took over behind the bench in November when St. Louis dismissed Mike Yeo from his coaching duties. At the start of 2019 the Blues were in last place. Then, Berube led the team on an 11-game win streak to put them in playoff position.
Months later, Berube hoisted the franchise's first Stanley Cup.
In June, the NHL Broadcasters' Association named him a finalist for the 2019 Jack Adams Award. The honor is given to the coach that contributes the most to his team's success throughout the season.
Berube first joined the Blues organization in June of 2017 as an associate coach.
