Alex Pietrangelo is most likely not returning to the St. Louis Blues for the 2020-21 season, or the season taking place totally in 2021, but being labeled 2020-21 officially.
The reality sank in pretty hard after Doug Armstrong and the Blues signed former Boston Bruins defenseman, Torey Krug, to a seven year contract with a rich annual average value. During a Zoom call with local media, Armstrong left open the door for a miraculous Petro return, but that’s publicity stunting at its finest. He knows it’s over. In the end, the general manager did as good of a job with Pietrangelo as could be expected.
