The Blues have named former Bruins and Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli as vice president of hockey operations, part of a series of changes to St. Louis' hockey operations department announced Wednesday.

Dave Taylor, who previously served as the team's vice president of hockey operations, will assume the role of senior advisor to hockey operations. Ken Hitchcock, who coached the Blues from 2011-17 and reached the postseason in each of his six seasons, rejoins the organization as a coaching consultant.
