2012 NHL Free Agency: Blues Re-Sign Chris Porter To Two-Way Deal

Spare cogs are always nice to have, and this off-season has seen the Blues pick up quite a few of them. The Peoria Rivermen have gotten an influx of defenseman and a goaltender; now, they get to keep one of their top forwards. The Blues, per Andy Strickland, have re-signed forward Chris Porter to a one year, two-way contract.

Porter will challenge for a spot on the fourth-line and he'd fill in for any Vladimir Sobotka in a pinch if Sobe winds up injured. Scott Nichol and Jamie Langenbrunner are both back, so expect to see Porter in a call-up spot for the most part. He played a surprising 47 games for St. Louis last season due to others' injuries, in which he had four goals and three assists, and finished a -1.
