Krug Confirms Rumored Trade That Didn't Happen

Speculations about a potential trade between the St. Louis Blues and the Philadelphia Flyers during the summer came to light, only for a player's decision to stall the whole process.

Torey Krug was involved in rumours that stated he'd be on his way to Philadelphia, but he confirmed that he wanted to stay in St. Louis.


"Obviously I chose to stay here (St. Louis). I want to be part of this room and love playing in this city and wearing the Blue Note so it's something I'm very excited about. You don't like hearing things like that. I have kids, I have a family. But I want to be here and wear the Note. I'm here to play hockey. I signed up to be in St. Louis for 7 years and that's what I want to do. When you hear stuff like that, there's more that goes into it than what's on the surfaceat the end of the day, I want to be here.»


Krug's comments clearly highlight his dedication to the Blues. His choice to reject the Flyers' trade underscores his allegiance to his current team.

Reaffirming his dedication, Krug added:

" I've seen everything in hockey, just about everything you can think of. If you know anything about me, or my history, you know I'm going to show up and go to work everyday. I think my teammates understand that and expect that.»

The Proposed Flyers-Blues Trade That Never Was

The speculated trade, had it gone through, would have considerably changed the dynamics of both teams.

Here's the scenario:

BLUES Acquire: D Travis Sanheim and F Kevin Hayes
FLYERS Acquire: D Torey Krug

Yet, the Flyers ended up trading Hayes to the Blues for a 6th round pick in 2024.

It's worth noting that Krug is under contract for another four years, with an AAV of $6.25 million. He's secured with a full no-trade clause for the two next seasons and a conditional one for the two years after that.
