ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues and coach Ken Hitchcock, who led the team to 109 points in a resurgence last season, have agreed to a one-year contract extension with a mutual option for 2014-15.

Hitchcock won the Jack Adams Award after producing the franchise's first 100-point season since 2001 and its first playoff series win since 2002.

The Blues were 7-1-2 in the first 10 games under Hitchcock, who replaced Davis Payne in early November. Hitchcock is 11th on the NHL career list with 576 victories and 70 playoff wins.
