NHL Rosters: Alex Pietrangelo Makes The St. Louis Blues' Roster, Ian Cole Does Not

The St. Louis Blues made a decision about their surplus of young defensemen Tuesday, electing to keep 20-year-old Alex Pietrangelo on the NHL roster and sending 21-year-old Ian Cole, a first round pick in 2007, back to the Peoria Rivermen.

Pietrangelo, the fourth overall pick in the 2008 NHL Draft, played nine games with the Blues in 2009-10, scoring one goal and picking up one assist. Of Ian Cole, Blues GM Doug Armstrong told Jeremy Rutherford, “We wanted Ian as part of the six or playing quite a bit. Ian had an excellent camp… We just want him to play.”
