Blues sign Ferriero to one-year, two-way contract


A veteran of 98 NHL games (14 G, 9 A) with the San Jose Sharks, New York Rangers, and Vancouver Canucks, forward Benn Ferriero has signed with the St. Louis Blues.

It’s a one-year, two-way contract for Ferriero, a 27-year-old winger who spent most of last season with Vancouver’s AHL affiliate in Utica, where he had 19 goals and 20 assists. He also made two appearances for the Canucks, failing to notch a point.

A Massachusetts native, Ferriero was drafted by the Coyotes in 2006 (196th overall) following his freshman year at Boston College.
