Born on May 5, 1998, Canadian professional ice hockey right winger Jordan Kyrou currently plays for the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League (NHL). Kyrou was chosen by the Blues at pick number 35 in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.
Teammate Jordan Kyrou was highlighted by Blues general manager Doug Armstrong on July 13 after Robert Thomas signed a franchise-record eight-year, $65 million contract extension.
At the time, Armstrong predicted that Robert and Jordan would increasingly take on leadership roles in the game. If we want to be a top organization, I believe we need Kyrou to be a top player. You saw what he did last year.
A reasonable person could wonder why Robert was mentioned first, rather than Jordan. So, to use an old adage, how do you herd all the horses back into the stable?

Take it one at a time. We have successfully returned one horse to the stable and will now turn our attention to the remaining equines.
And just two months after bringing Thomas on board, Armstrong added another horse to the stable. Kyrou, who was given a new contract extension on Tuesday, is a thoroughbred. It’s an eight-year contract worth $65 million, or $8.125 million a year. Similar to what happened with Thomas.
Kyrou was chosen by the St. Louis Blues at pick number 35 in the second round of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. Kyrou joined the Blues on July 27, 2016, signing a three-year entry-level deal. Kyrou was appointed captain of the Sarnia Sting prior to the 2017-18 season, which would be his fourth with the team. After the 2017–18 OHL season, Kyrou was named the league’s best right winger, earning him the Jim Mahon Memorial Trophy.
Following the 2018-19 training camp, Kyrou was added to the Blues’ opening night roster and made his NHL debut on October 4 against the Winnipeg Jets. On October 12, he recorded his first NHL point, an assist, in a 5-3 win against the Calgary Flames.
On December 9, 2018, he recorded his first NHL goal in a 3-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks. Kyrou was placed on the injured reserve to start the 2019-20 season and was later assigned to the San Antonio Rampage of the American Hockey League (AHL).
