On Thursday, the St. Louis Blues announced a two-year contract extension for forward Chris Porter.
Porter, 28, was originally a Chicago draftee that signed with the Blues in 2007, making his NHL debut during the 2008-09 season.

Porter has appeared in 15 games for the Blues this year, scoring 1G-1A with a plus-3 rating. He was recalled to the club in late February and has been a lineup fixture ever since.
