The St. Louis Blues have recalled Chris Butler from the AHL.

Butler is joining the Blues because they have a roster opening after they traded Jordan Leopold away to Columbus. Butler played in all 82 games for Calgary last season, but he has yet to see any action in the NHL this season. He is nothing more than a depth defenseman right now.

Chris Butler is on waivers.

Butler had two goals and 16 points in 82 games with the Calgary Flames last season. He agreed to a one-year, two-way deal over the summer. He hasn't played in the minors since the 2008-09 campaign, but unless he gets claimed, that will probably change soon.

Chris Butler has agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the St. Louis Blues.

Butler had 16 points and a minus-23 rating in 82 games with the Calgary Flames last season. He also ranked second in the NHL with 211 blocked shots. The Blues defense for the start of the season already looks pretty much set, but there's a small chance that Butler will be able to beat out Ian Cole for the final roster spot.

Chris Butler finished with second in the NHL with 211 blocked shots.

He trailed only Andrew MacDonald who had 241 in a season split between the Islanders and Philadelphia. Butler also finished 10 ahead of teammate Kris Russell. Butler had only two goals and 16 points with a terrible minus-23 rating but if you need blocked shots next season, he will help your fantasy team.
