ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Last year the St. Louis Blues told Jordan Kyrou, 20, he needed at least one more year to improve his game in the Ontario Hockey League, before graduating from junior hockey. After being named the MVP in the OHL, he knows he'll either be in the NHL or AHL come October. 

"I'm pretty confident that I can do what I can, use my abilities and my attributes," Kyrou says. "I need to continue to work on my defense game and little details of my ability as well." 

Kyrou participated in his third Blues prospect camp, Tuesday. He was in a group with other prospects like Erik Foley (acquired in the Paul Stastny trade from Winnipeg) and Dominik Bokk (2018 1st round draft pick).  

Kyrou says he took the advice given to him by the Blues, after he got the news that he was headed back to Juniors. He played in four preseason games with St. Louis last year, scoring once and adding three assists.

"They just said they want me to go back and develop some more, so that's what I did," Kyrou says.
