Porter gets one-way deal with Blues

Former UND captain Chris Porter has re-signed with the St. Louis Blues.

Porter got a two-year, one-way deal, which means he’s likely to stick in the NHL, because the Blues will have to pay him an NHL salary even if he’s in the AHL.

This is the first one-way deal of Porter’s career.

Porter has played 15 games for the Blues this season, scoring one goal and adding one assist. He had seven goals and 10 points in 12 games in the AHL to start the year.

For his career, Porter has played 113 NHL games (all with the Blues) and tallied nine goals and 18 points.

Porter’s former UND teammate and current Blues teammate, T.J. Oshie, was excited to hear about Porter’s new contract.

“Congrats to Chris Porter on resigning!! Hardest working guy you’ll find and a great teammate. #peskyblues #siouxalum,” Oshie tweeted.

  1. Well deserved, one-way deal. Mr. Porter is a solid player. Glad to see his hard work equate to the one-way deal. Congratulations to Mr. Porter!

  2. Not the most skilled player ever for the Sioux, but nobody outworked him, or played through injuries the way he did. And he endeared himself forever to Fighting Sioux fans for his OT winning goal over Minnesota in 2007 West Region finals. Have a ton of respect for Chris Porter.
