Signing old San Jose Sharks seems to have done well for the Blues, especially in the case of gritty fourth-liner Scott Nichol. This time around it wasn't a player in the same mold as Nichol that they snagged. Instead, it was an AHL guy who could come in handy for injury calling-upping. The Blues signed Andrew Murray to a one year, two way contract for a standard $600,000 cap hit.
Murray played 39 games for the Sharks last year, tallying one goal and three assists. He's played portions of five NHL seasons between the Sharks and the Columbus Blue Jackets, scoring 40 points in 220 games.
