That conclusion is, at least in part, why the Blues recalled forward Derek Armstrong on Wednesday. Armstrong, who was sent to Peoria at the start of the season, has a laid-back personality that is infectious to players around him. Some who got to know him in training camp felt the Blues would miss that when he was assigned to Peoria.
“He’s got lots of experience and he’s also . . . a personality,” Davidson said. “Maybe he can get our guys to relax a little bit.”
