After hearing development coach Tim Taylor sing the praises of a late-blooming defenseman playing college hockey in Alaska, Doug Armstrong went to see for himself.

The St. Louis Blues' general manager and Taylor watched as Colton Parayko dominated a game at Bowling Green, and even then Armstrong didn't get his hopes too high.

"We were excited, but it's one thing to do it at the college level or junior level," he said. "It's another one to do it with the men in the NHL."
