After seeing his Colorado College season end in stunning fashion, St. Louis Blues 2010 first-round pick Jaden Schwartz is ready for the show.

The Blues signed Schwartz to his three-year entry-level contract and will have him join the Blues in Chicago tomorrow night. While the Blues could send Schwartz to the AHL and play for Peoria there, they want to see what he can bring to the table right away.

After a monster year in college that saw Schwartz put up 15 goals and 41 points in 30 games it’s clear that the 19-year-old Schwartz is ready for a bigger challenge. Jumping on board with the first place Blues in what’s essentially a well-oiled machine at this point should give Schwartz a comfort zone for getting his professional career under way.

    41 points in 30 game is impressive . just a little added bonus for the blues if he can make a good impression on hitch in his first couple of games.LGB!!

    I am an Isles fan, but its obvious they won’t be in the dance this year. So I am throwing my support to the Blues. I want them to get their first ever Cup so Jaden gets to lift it in Mandi’s honor.

    I’ve had the privilege of being able to watch jaden play for two years, he will bring a lot to the blues right away. He’s a very smart player and goal scorer.
