The St. Louis Blues re-signed forward Scott Nichol to a one-year, $650K contract on Thursday, bringing the 12-year veteran back for another season with the Central Division Champions.
Last season with the Blues, Nichol played in 80 games and contributed eight points including three goals and 83 penalty minutes. He also won over 57-percent of his faceoffs.
"We are pleased to have Scott back in the fold for next year," said General Manager Doug Armstrong via press release. "His work ethic and professionalism are second to none and he serves as an excellent role model for our young core."
The Edmonton, Alberta native was drafted in the 11th round of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft by the Buffalo Sabres and signed with the Blues as a free agent in July of 2011.
The Blues also promoted former player, broadcaster and sales manager Bruce Affleck to chief operating officer.
