ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Saturday the club has assigned forwards Jonathan Cheechoo, Adam Cracknell, Philip McRae, Anthony Peluso and Brett Sterling, defensemen Ian Cole and Mark Cundari along with goaltender Ben Bishop to the Blues’ American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, Peoria Rivermen.
Cracknell made his NHL debut at age 25 last year and gave the Blues quite a boost when the club went through a rash of injuries. He had three goals and seven points in 24 games, but most important, didn't look out of place.
