Blues Surprisingly Decline Option on Jared Bednar

In a shocking turn of events the St. Louis Blues effectively fired Peoria Rivermen coach Jared Bednar by refusing to pick up his option. The move comes as a major surprise as Bednar was told in May that the option would be picked up as a matter of routine – an indicator that the team clearly wanted him back. Bednar received heaps of praise during his two years as coach making the team’s decision even more puzzling.

Currently there is no clear reason as to why the Blues decided to let their head coach of their AHL affiliate walk. The Rivermen stumbled as a club in the final few weeks of the season but this was likely due to the fact their top goalie, Ben Bishop, was dealt to Ottawa while another intricate piece, Ian Cole, remained at the NHL level with the Blues. The Rivermen failed to achieve their desired result but it seems pretty harsh that Bednar would lose his job given the other factors involved.
