Former Steelhead re-signs with NHL's Blues

Former Idaho Steelhead forward BJ Crombeen has signed a new contract with the NHL?s St. Louis Blues for the 2009-2010 season. ?BJ played a huge role for us up front with his scoring and toughness in his rookie year,? Blues president John Davidson said in a release on the team?s official website. ?We expect him to provide the same competitiveness and intensity next season.? Crombeen, 25, was claimed on waivers by the Blues from the Dallas Stars in November 2008. He finished his first full NHL season with 22 points (12 goals, 10 assists) in 81 games. He also recorded his first NHL hat trick on December 8, becoming the first Blues rookie to tally three goals in the same game since 1992. The Denver, CO, native spent part of two seasons with the Steelheads. He appeared in eight contests for Idaho during the 2005-2006 season, scoring five goals in that span. He had a larger impact during the 2006-2007 campaign. Between the regular season and playoffs, Crombeen played in 35 games with the Steelheads, tallying 12 goals and nine assists as the team went on to win the ECHL?s Kelly Cup championship. Crombeen was the second-round selection (54th overall pick) of the Dallas Stars in 2003.
