NHL: Berube excited for Blues future

Coach Craig Berube signed a three-year contract extension on Wednesday before saying he's excited for what the future holds for the St. Louis Blues.

The Blues, 22/1 to win the Stanley Cup in 2021/22, have gone 133-72-30 over four seasons under Berube's guidance and won the Stanley Cup for the first time in their history in 2019.

Berube boasts impressive record

St. Louis have qualified for the playoffs in each of Berube's seasons in charge, and currently sit fourth in the Central Division with a 26-14-5 record.

The 56-year-old joined the Blues as an associate coach in June 2017 and was promoted to head coach following the firing of Mike Yeo in November 2018.

In his first season, he took the franchise from last place in the NHL standings to the Stanley Cup. Previous, he coached the Philadelphia Flyers from 2013-15 going 75-58-28.

Described as "the perfect coach for the group" by General Manager Doug Armstrong, Berube also has the support of Captain Ryan O'Reilly who said what he likes best is "his timing", in "seeing what the group needs at different times and the way he delivers it."

Big excitement for Berube

Currently, Berube ranks seventh in Blues history in games coached (234), fourth in wins (133). His points percentage (.632) ranks second. His contract was set to expire at the end of the season.

Berube said to the media: "I enjoy St. Louis and I enjoy the team. … I think we've got a real good hockey team here going forward, and we can do some damage. So, I'm excited."
