Barret Jackman has joined the St. Louis Blues as their development coach.
Jackman announced the end of his playing career back in October. Although he last played with Nashville, he inked a one-day contract with St. Louis so that he could retire as a member of the Blues. That made sense given that he spent 803 of his 876-game career with St. Louis. Now he'll get to stay with the organization in the next chapter of his journey. "I think the development thing is perfect for me," Jackman added. "I have an opportunity just to focus on a couple of guys instead of a whole team. I always felt as a player that I was pretty good in helping the younger guys, and this is an opportunity to continue to do that without having to get beat up on the ice every day."

The Nashville Predators' call to buy out Barret Jackman was a "last-minute decision."

"When we got (defenseman P.K.) Subban and then we had talked to Yannick Weber and had a feeling we'd be able to sign him, we just felt that this would be the best thing," Predators GM David Poile said. Nashville freed up roughly $1.3 million in cap space for 2016-17 by making that move, though the Predators will carry an extra $666,666 in 2017-18. Jackman hasn't landed a new contract yet.
