Blues sign Scott Gomez to 1-year contract

ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. Louis Blues signed forward Scott Gomez to a one-year contract Wednesday.

The 35-year-old Gomez, a 15-year NHL veteran, attended training camp on a professional tryout. He had seven goals and 27 assists in 58 games last season for New Jersey.

St. Louis added forward Scottie Upshall on Monday, also after a tryout.

The Blues placed forward Patrik Berglund on long-term injured reserve. Berglund underwent shoulder surgery in August and will be evaluated in four months.

St. Louis said defenseman Alex Pietrangelo and forward Alexander Steen will be assistant captains.
