Alex Pietrangelo could be the next captain of the St. Louis Blues.

"He was an assistant captain at a young age and he has leadership qualities that we've seen," said GM Doug Armstrong. "As he gets more and more comfortable in the leadership role he's certainly growing into an elite player that has a presence on the ice." Pietrangelo and Alexander Steen are the two most likely candidates for the captaincy after David Backes left for Boston via free agency.

Alex Pietrangelo thinks the hockey gods are testing the St. Louis Blues right now.

"The Hockey Gods are testing us right now," Pietrangelo said. "I still thought we deserved to win the game. The puck ends up right back on (Kane’s) stick somehow, and he finds an open net. I thought we played one of our better games. We deserved to win and we will get ready for the next one. It’s still 3-2."

Alex Pietrangelo scored his first goal in seven games during Friday's 6-5 loss to Boston.

It's been a trying season for the talented blue liner, filled with injury and woe. He's now up to six goals and 31 points in 69 games thus far. So it looks like he has a chance to finish with modest totals after all.
Apr 2 - 12:04 AM

Alex Pietrangelo scored the overtime game-winning goal for the Blues in their 5-4 victory against the Stars on Saturday night.

He also had an assist to give him 28 points. This was a fun one as Dallas needed two third-period goals to tie up the game and force overtime. Pietrangelo ripped his fifth goal of the season past Antti Niemi at 2:11 of overtime. He hasn’t been the standout we’ve come to know on the offensive side of things, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see him get a half-point per game the rest of the way. Kevin Shattenkirk (two goals), Vladimir Tarasenko (goal, assist) and Troy Brouwer got the goals. Paul Stastny chipped in with three assists, while Robby Fabrri and Jaden Schwartz had two helpers apiece.

During Sunday's 5-2 win over Carolina, Alex Pietrangelo picked up a goal and an assist in his first game back from injury.

The Blues' top defender played a team high 23 minutes as well as collecting five blocks. He's now up to five goals and 27 points in 57 games this season.
