St. Louis Blues Hire Rob Ramage As Part-Time Scout

Rob Ramage has spent this past season as an assistant coach for the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, but starting soon he'll be back with the St. Louis organization as a part-time amateur scout. Former Blue Basil McRae is resigning his scouting position to spend more time with his children, who include current Blues prospect Philip McRae.

Ramage is familiar with the Blues organization, having played just under six seasons with the team before being traded to the Calgary Flames in 1988 with Rick Wamsley in exchange for someone you might've heard of : Brett Hull. In the proud tradition of Blues who were traded away, Ramage won the Stanley Cup the next season with the Flames.

Ramage is also known in the St. Louis and Chicago areas for the unfortunate 2003 accident that killed former Chicago Blackhawks captain Keith Magnuson. Ramage was convicted of drunk driving and was sentenced to four years in prison. He was released on parole in May and has been a coach with the London Knights since December of last year when he was named assistant coach after Dale Hunter left to coach the Washington Capitals.
