ST. LOUIS (AP) - Doug Weight is bringing his Stanley Cup ring back to St. Louis.

The center signed a multiyear deal with the Blues on Sunday, six months after they traded him to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes.

Weight was part of the Blues' payroll purge that helped facilitate the team's sale. With John Davidson now in place as club president, Weight returned to the team with whom he spent most of the past four seasons.


"We are bringing back a player that loves the city of St. Louis and the Blues organization," Davidson said. "He's a Stanley Cup winner and will be a key part of this team moving forward."

Weight, 35, is a four-time All-Star and has played in 982 career NHL games, with 885 points and 809 penalty minutes. He played with St. Louis from 2001 until this January when he was sent to the Hurricanes for draft picks.

He had three goals and 13 assists in the first 23 games of Carolina's run to the title but missed the final two contests in the Stanley Cup finals after he separated his right shoulder in Game 5 against the Edmonton Oilers.

That was to be expected. I guess now he's going to play out what was a very good career. A Stanley Cup, only 17 short of 1000 NHL games, and 2-3 seasons away from 1000 career NHL points and an Olympic Silver Medal.

Nicly done. :thumbsup:
