ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Monday the club has signed forward Brenden Morrow to a one-year deal.

Morrow, 34, posted 11 points (six goals, five assists) and 18 penalty minutes in 29 games with Dallas last season before being acquired by Pittsburgh at the trade deadline.

Morrow went on to log 14 points (six goals, eight assists) in 19 penalty minutes in his final 15 regular season games with the Penguins as well as four points (two goals, two assists) and eight penalty minutes in 14 playoff appearances.

"The Blues have been knocking on the door...I think they're a team that can push through it and I want to be a part of that," Morrow said via conference call. "It's good to be on (the Blues side) instead of having to compete against them every night."

Prior to joining Pittsburgh, Morrow spent his entire 13-year career in Dallas, where he served as the team's captain since 2006. Overall, the 6-foot, 210-pound forward has dressed in 850 career games, accumulating 542 points (249 goals and 293 assists) to go along with 1,222 penalty minutes.

In addition, Morrow has tallied 46 points (19 goals, 27 assists) and 108 penalty minutes in 92 career playoff games.

"I think he just makes us a better team," Armstrong said. "He's a competitive player, he's played in the Stanley Cup Finals, the Stanley Cup Semifinals, last year went to Pittsburgh at the trade deadline and played very well there. He hurt his knee, his knee cap quite severely, and played through it. That's the type of player we want, someone that plays through injuries, has no excuses, and he's a player that's going to help our grit quota and we're going to be a tougher team to play with him in the lineup."

Internationally, the Carlyle, Saskatchewan native has skated for Team Canada on seven different occasions, most notably winning the gold medal in the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. He also won gold in the 2004 World Cup of Hockey and 2004 World Championships, and silver in the 2005 World Championships and the 1999 World Juniors.

Morrow was originally drafted by Dallas in the first round, 25th overall, of the 1997 NHL Draft.
