Sad news for Blues fans who enjoyed seeing a former fan favorite behind the bench. Blues alum Scott Mellanby announced today his intention to not return as assistant coach next season.
“I would like to thank the Blues organization for giving me the opportunity to coach in the National Hockey League,” said Mellanby. “After two years of coaching I realize my passion is in the hockey operations department, which I would like to pursue. I have enjoyed my time here as a player and as a coach and wish nothing but the best for the Blues and their fans.”
It seems doubtful that he’ll return to work with any capacity for the Blues and their new owner, Tom Stillman. Best of luck to Mellanby in his future endeavors.
