Jordan Kyrou (born May 5, 1998) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre and right winger who currently plays for the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League (NHL). Kyrou was selected 35th overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft by the Blues.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
Kyrou first played junior hockey as a youth after moving to Mississauga, Ontario. Whilst playing for the Mississauga AAA Senators, Kyrou was selected with the 38th overall pick in the 2014 OHL Priority Selection draft by the Sarnia Sting. He was signed to a standard players contract with the Sting on July 7, 2014. Kyrou completed the 2014–15 season in making his OHL debut with the Sarnia Sting, featuring in 63 games and accumulating 36 points.
At the completion of his second full major junior season with Sarnia in the 2015–16 season, Kyrou was selected in the second-round, 35th overall, of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft by the St. Louis Blues. On July 27, 2016, Kyrou was signed by the Blues to a three-year, entry-level contract. Before the 2017–18 season, and his fourth season with the Sarnia Sting, Kyrou was named captain of the Stings. At the end of the 2017–18 season Kyrou was awarded the Jim Mahon Memorial Trophy as the OHL's top scoring right winger after he led all right wingers with 109 points.
Kyrou made the Blues opening night roster for the 2018–19 season after attending training camp, and subsequently made his NHL debut on October 4 against the Winnipeg Jets. He recorded his first NHL point, an assist, on October 12 in 5–3 win over the Calgary Flames and his first career NHL goal on December 9, 2018, in a loss to the Vancouver Canucks.
Kyrou began the 2019–20 season on the injured list and was sent down to the San Antonio Rampage (AHL) upon recovery. He was recalled to the St. Louis Blues on December 9, 2019, and scored his first goal of the season on December 16, 2019, in a 5–2 win over the Colorado Avalanche.

During the pause in play due to COVID-19, Kyrou competed in a league wide Fortnite tournament for charity with teammates Robert Thomas and Vince Dunn. Together, they finished in second place and donated $50,000 to the St. Louis Children's Hospital, $25,000 to the St. Louis Area Foodbank, and $25,000 to muscular dystrophy research.
