ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Wednesday that Blues Assistant Coach Scott Mellanby will depart from the organization to explore other career opportunities.
“We thank Scott for his hard work and dedication in our organization over the past two seasons,” said Armstrong. “He is a true professional and we wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.”
"I would like to thank the Blues organization for giving me the opportunity to coach in the National Hockey League," said Mellanby. "After two years of coaching I realize my passion is in the hockey operations department, which I would like to pursue. I have enjoyed my time here as a player and as a coach and wish nothing but the best for the Blues and their fans."
Mellanby, 45, has served as a Blues Assistant Coach for the past two seasons during which the team posted a combined 87-55-22 (196 pts) regular season record including the second best record in club history and a trip to the Conference Semifinals in 2011-12.
A former 21-year NHL veteran, Mellanby spent four seasons in St. Louis appearing in 235 games with the Blues.
