Ken Hitchcock will be back for another season behind the St. Louis Blues bench but two of his assistants won't.

On Wednesday the Blues announced that Hitchcock as agreed to a one-year contract extension with the club. His contract in St. Louis was up after this summer after joining the Blues in place of Payne Davis early in the 2011-12.

Since Hitchcock took over the Blues they are 124-55-20 in the regular season and he was such a hit in his first season that he took home the Jack Adams Award as the league's top coach.
