Blues sign Colin Fraser — one-year, two-way deal

If the St. Louis Blues are looking for Stanley Cup-winning experience, they just found a guy to help provide that.

The Blues announced they’ve signed forward Colin Fraser to a one-year two-way contract. He spent the past three seasons with the Los Angeles Kings and was an important player in their Stanley Cup win in 2012.

Fraser, 29, was a favorite of Kings coach Darryl Sutter and played well on the fourth line for Los Angeles. Last season, he struggled a bit and spent some time in the AHL before being recalled for the Kings playoff run. He did not participate in the playoffs, however, as the Kings four steady lines rolled strong throughout the postseason.

In his career, Fraser has been part of three Cup-winning teams also playing on the 2010 Chicago Blackhawks team that knocked off Philly in the Final. His brand of physical, defensive play should have Blues coach Ken Hitchcock over the moon to have him potentially help in the bottom six.
