Jordan Kyrou is happy
He is happy about the opportunity he will get and his primary goal will be to progress and show his qualities.
"It's nice to get something done and just kind of not have to worry about that," Kyrou said. "Now I can just go focus on playing hockey and working on my game and working on what I need to do to be at the peak of my game.
I think for me, it just gives me this whole year to continue and work on my game and just get better and not even focus on any of the contract talk and any of the stuff like that." Blues general manager Doug Armstrong expressed his satisfaction with the arrival of such a player to the team.
They know how much he will mean to the team and what his capacities are. "We're excited to have a player of his caliber locked up for the meat of his career," Blues general manager Doug Armstrong said. "Coming in as a high draft choice, what he did as a junior hockey player, Ontario (Hockey League) player of the year, won a World Championship, came in and was a good player in the American [Hockey] League and he honed his craft coming here last year and being a over a point a game player."
Jordan Kyrou is eager to prove himself. He wants to take advantage of the opportunity that has been given to him, and it will be a great thing for the team.
