Craig Berube made the strongest argument you can to lose an interim coach tag -- winning the Stanley Cup. The St. Louis Blues agreed, signing him to a three-year contract Tuesday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"Craig made an enormous impact on our team when he took over last November," general manager Doug Armstrong said in a statement. "He restored our identity and provided our players with a clear sense of direction and purpose. The chemistry and trust that he developed with our players was integral in bringing our franchise the 2019 Stanley Cup."
