St.  Louis,  MO (SportsNetwork.com)  -  The  St.  Louis Blues  have  re-signed 
goaltender Brian Elliott to a three-year contract extension. 

Monday's news means Ryan Miller's short stint with the club is over. 

The Blues made  a blockbuster deal with Buffalo to acquire the veteran Miller 
near  the trade  deadline. Miller was considered  to be the final piece of the 
puzzle  for a St. Louis team that was expected to make a deep playoff run, but 
the move didn't pay off as the Blues lost in the first round to Chicago. 

Miller will become an unrestricted free agent this summer. 

Elliott also could have tested the market, but opted to stay with the Blues. 

Elliott,  29,  posted an 18-6-2  record with  a 1.96 goals-against average and 
.922 save percentage  in 31  games last season, and Blues general manager Doug 
Armstrong  said he  "will team  up with  Jake Allen  next season  to form  our 
goaltending tandem." 

The  23-year-old  Allen was named  the American Hockey League's top goaltender 
with  the  Chicago Wolves for  the 2013-14  regular season after going 33-16-3 
with a 2.03 GAA and is viewed as the Blues' future in the crease. 

Elliott  has spent  the last three seasons  with the Blues and ranks second in 
team history with 16 shutouts. 

For  his  career, he has a  record of 116-77-23 with  a 2.48 GAA and .910 save 
percentage in 235 games with Ottawa, Colorado and St. Louis.
