(CBS) – The Chicago Wolves have agreed to a three-year deal with the St. Louis Blues, according to a team release.
“We are very excited about the relationship we are starting with the St. Louis Blues,” said Wolves General Manager Wendell Young. “The Blues have the same philosophy about their players on both the NHL and AHL level as we do, and that is maturing them in a winning environment. Part of player development is teaching players how to establish a winning attitude on and off the ice and I think we have a great recipe to pass onto St. Louis’ players.
The Wolves have won four league championships in 19 seasons of competition: the International Hockey League’s Turner Cup in 1998 and 2000, and the American Hockey League’s Calder Cup in 2002 and 2008.
