Alex Pietrangelo named to Forbes' 30 Under 30 Sports List for 2020

He captained the Blues to the franchise's first Stanley Cup, and now Alex Pietrangelo is getting some more major national recognition.

Alex Pietrangelo might seem like the St. Louis Blues' grizzled veteran captain by now, but it's true he's still just 29 years old.

He's accomplished quite a bit in his 12 years with the Blues, but now he's getting some more recognition off the ice.

Forbes Magazine has named Pietrangelo to their annual 30 Under 30 List of people in sports to watch for 2020.

The Blues' defenseman was the only hockey player on Forbes' list this year. Pietrangelo will actually turn 30 on January 30.

Other notable members of this year's Forbes list include Nathan Chen, Julie Ertz, Paul George, Patrick Mahomes, Christian Pulisic, Klay Thompson and Christian Yelich.

Forbes has been making their annual "30 Under 30 Lists" since 2011.
