Brendan Bell is no longer singing the Blues.

He's playing for them.

Growing anxious over being a player without a team, the former Senators and 67’s defenceman today signed a one-year, two-way contract with the St. Louis Blues. Bell could have inked a similar deal with the Senators, but he considered St. Louis a better opportunity at furthering his career.

Bell, an Ottawa native, played 53 games with the Senators last season. He scored six goals and had 15 assists.

“I’m excited to join a young team headed in the right direction,” Bell told the Sun this morning. “I look forward to the opportunity to further my career and contribute to a playoff team.”
