St. Louis signs AHL vet Keith Aucoin

Journeyman Keith Aucoin might be getting a shot in Missouri.

Aucoin, a veteran of the AHL with over 700 games player, spent last season splitting time between the Toronto Marlies and the NHL’s New York Islanders, and his performance on Long Island landed him a deal with the Blues.

The deal, which is one-way and will pay Aucoin $625,000, signals that Aucoin is going to get his first full shot at making it in the bigs.

Though his AHL tenure, Aucoin has been well over a point per game player, with 814 (233-581) points in 707 games. An alternate captain in Hershey from 2008-2012, Aucoin has always been a reliable offensive player and very rarely a liability in his own end.

It may not signal the end of Aucoin’s AHL career, but this is the next step that AHL fans have been waiting for the 34-year-old to make.
