Blues Activate Wade Redden

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced the Blues have activated defenseman Wade Redden today.

Redden will wear No. 6.

“It’s a chance to come back and show I can play and just be part of a team,” Redden said. “We’ve got a good team here, and I want to help the team win and have some success.”

Redden spent 11 seasons with the Ottawa Senators, most of which were spent playing alongside Zdeno Chara. Redden signed as a free agent with the New York Rangers prior to the start of the 2008-09 season, but struggled in New York. He spent the last two seasons with their American Hockey League affiliate, the Connecticut Whale.

Now, the Blues have given him another chance to play in the NHL.

“Everybody in hockey, especially in Canada that knows his story, is really proud of him,” Ken Hitchcock said. “They’re proud of him that he stayed with it and proud of him that he’s getting a second opportunity like this. It’s nice to see him get a chance to get it back.”
