St. Louis Blues defenseman Torey Krug briefly explained why he refused to be traded to the Philadelphia Flyers.

This summer, general manager Doug Armstrong concocted a trade that would have brought the 32-year veteran and his $6.5 million annual salary to the Pennsylvania team. The hockey player, however, refused to waive his immobility clause and the transaction failed.

The Blues and Flyers continued to negotiate anyway and forward Kevin Hayes packed his bags for St. Louis in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2024 draft.

“I chose to stay here. I want to be a part of this locker room, I love playing for this city and wearing the Bluenote,” Krug said Tuesday, his comments reported by the National League website.

“It makes me feverish. You obviously don’t like hearing things like that. I have children, a family, lots of things to think about. But at the end of the day, like I said, I want to play here and wear (the Blues jersey). We have a good group in the locker room and we have a good feeling about this year. I think we can quickly turn things around.

New Blues captain Brayden Schenn talked a little more about it.

“He didn’t want to be traded to a team where he felt like he had less of a chance of winning, let’s put it that way. Philadelphia is in a rebuilding phase and we think we can be competitive here. We have good elements in this locker room and he wants to be part of it. (…) Honestly, we are lucky to have him. He is one of the best defensemen in the League on the power play,” he said.

Krug joined the Blues as a free agent in October 2020. He signed a seven-year contract worth a total of $45.5 million. Last year, he had seven goals and 25 assists for 32 points in 63 games.
