ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Blues have re-signed goalie Brian Elliott to a three-year contract, and will not pursue a new deal with Ryan Miller.
General manager Doug Armstrong said Monday the team took a calculated risk acquiring Miller from Buffalo, hoping he could lead the franchise to its first Stanley Cup. But the Blues were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs.
Armstrong said the 29-year-old Elliott will compete for the starting job with Jake Allen, the team's top goalie prospect.
Elliott was 18-6-2 with four shutouts, a 1.96 goals-against average and .922 save percentage. He shared the starting job with Jaroslav Halak before the Miller deal.
In three seasons with St. Louis, Elliott has an NHL-high 16 shutouts - tied for second in franchise history.
