Doug Armstrong
President of Hockey Operations and General Manager / Alternate Governor

Doug Armstrong was named the Blues’ President of Hockey Operations and General Manager/Alternate Governor on Sept. 3, 2013 after serving three seasons as the Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations and two seasons as the Vice President of Player Personnel. The 11th General Manager in Blues history, in 2011-12, Armstrong led the club to its first Central Division title since 2000, earning him the NHL’s 2012 General Manager of the Year award. During his tenure, Armstrong has brought in key members of the organization including 2012 Jack Adams winner, Ken Hitchcock, and 2012 Jennings Trophy winner, Brian Elliott, as well as extended the contracts of such core players as David Backes, Alexander Steen, Patrik Berglund and T.J. Oshie. Armstrong has also orchestrated the additions of Jay Bouwmeester, Kevin Shattenkirk and Paul Stastny, as well as the drafts of Dmitrij Jaskin, Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko.

Armstrong spent 17 years with the Dallas Stars organization and his final six seasons as the club’s General Manager. From January 25, 2002, to the start of the 2007-08 season, Armstrong led the Stars to the third most regular season point total (427), collected the third-most wins (190) and the second most home victories (110) and points (240) in the entire NHL. Dallas won two Pacific Division Championships (2002-03, 2005-06) and qualified for the playoffs four times over the span.

Armstrong was a part of the Stars’ organization since the club moved to Dallas in 1993 and helped lead the franchise to two Presidents’ Trophies, two Western Conference titles and the 1999 Stanley Cup championship.

Prior to being named the team's seventh General Manager, Armstrong served nine years as the Assistant General Manager under Bob Gainey. As Gainey's assistant, Armstrong worked on contract negotiations and season scheduling, and handled the day-to-day operations of the hockey department.

On the international level, Armstrong was the Associate Director of Player Personnel for gold medal winning Team Canada at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. He served as the General Manager for Team Canada and won the silver medal at the 2009 IIHF World Championship in Switzerland. He was the Assistant General Manager for Team Canada at the 2002 World Championship and 2008 World Championship (silver medal). Armstrong served as a special advisor to Steve Yzerman for Canada that won gold at the 2007 World Championship in Moscow. Canada went 9-0 during the tournament for the first time since 1937 when the World Championships were held in London, England.

Armstrong and Yzerman are currently the only two General Managers in the NHL that are members of the “Triple Gold Club”, having been on the management staff for a Stanley Cup, Olympic gold medal and World Championship gold medal.

A native of Sarnia, Ontario, Armstrong is the son of NHL Hall of Fame linesman Neil Armstrong who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1991.

Armstrong and his wife Kelly, son Blake, and daughter Kayla, live in Creve Coeur, Missouri.
