Blues sign former Red Wings goalie

Wednesday, August 9, 2006

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues signed free-agent goaltender Manny Legace to a one-year contract Tuesday, setting up a likely battle for the starting job.

Terms of the deal were not released.

Legace, who spent the last six seasons with the Detroit Red Wings, is expected to compete with Curtis Sanford to be the No. 1 goalie in St. Louis.

Legace went 37-8-0 as Detroit's starter last season, but struggled in the postseason.
