Veteran forward Brenden Morrow patiently waited to see the situation around the league in his search for a contract and it finally paid off. Morrow is headed to the St. Louis Blues.

Morrow had been picking up some interest as training camps rolled along and was mulling over the offers. According to Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com he liked the offer from the Blues enough to take it.

Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the contract is worth $1.5 million.

As LeBrun points out there is the one major connection between Morrow and St. Louis right off the bat. Morrow was a Star for his whole career until last season when he was traded to Pittsburgh. Hitchcock and Armstrong know him well even if it's been a while since there were all together and Morrow's game and health have depreciated.

That said on the surface it looks like a great fit. Morrow is still a tough hard-working forward who is more suited for a third-line role at this point. The way he plays fits right in line with the way the Blues play; defense first and physical. If he can remain healthy it's a pretty safe play from the Blues.
