The St. Louis Blues have assigned Chris Butler back to the minors.

So much for that. It was believed that the Blues would keep him on the roster for the next little while, but they've obviously been underwhelmed by his play. He has no points and a minus-3 rating in two games this season.

Chris Butler will continue to get an opportunity to play for the St. Louis Blues for now.

Butler is in the lineup because Robert Bortuzzo (lower body) is on injured reserve. The Blues won't recall an extra defenseman in the minors, so it'll be up to Butler to fill the void until everyone gets healthy. "Yeah, it’s exciting," Butler said. "Like we kind of touched on the other day, you never know if you’re really gonna get another opportunity. Especially the way the game’s going, with it getting younger and younger." The 31-year-old has no points and a minus-3 rating in two games with the Blues this season. He shouldn't pop up on your fantasy radar.

The St. Louis Blues have sent Chris Butler to AHL Chicago.

The 29-year-old has seen just 387 games of action since being drafted in 2005. He's a classic quad-A player, so we wouldn't look to him for any fantasy production.
