St. Louis Blues Fire Craig Berube

The St.Louis Blues announced this morning that they have fired Head Coach Craig Berube as the Blues currently have a record of 13-14-1 and sit in sixth place in the Central Divison. Berube has been in the Blues organization since the 2016-17 season, where he was the Head Coach of the Chicago Wolves in the AHL before spending a little over two years as an associate coach with the Blues before taking over as the Head Coach on November 20th, 2018. During his term as Head Coach, he led the Blues to a Stanley Cup Championship in 2019, and the team has made the playoffs in four of the five-plus years he spent as head coach as the team had a record of 206-132-44 during his tenure as head coach.

Drew Bannister will take over the interim head coaching duties for the Saint Louis Blues. Bannister has spent the last three seasons as the head coach of the Springfield Thunderbird, who are the Blues AHL affiliate, and in the three seasons under Bannister, they went 93-58-19 and have made back-to-back Calder Cup Playoff appearances. Prior to joining the Blues Organization, Bannister spent six years in the OHL, three of them as an assistant and three of them as head coach, as well as two years as a head coach of the San Antonio Rampage and a year as an assistant with the Utica Comets. Bannister will coach his first NHL game tomorrow night as the Blues take on the Ottawa Senators
