The St. Louis Blues have agreed to terms on a two-year deal with defenseman Robert Bortuzzo, the club announced on Thursday.

According to Lou Korac of NHL.com, the deal is worth $2.1 million with a $1.05 million annual average value. Bortuzzo will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the deal.

The 26-year-old appeared in 13 regular season games with the Blues following a mid-season trade from the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The St. Louis Blues have also come to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with forward Jordan Caron.

Caron split the 2014-15 season between the Boston Bruins and Colorado Avalanche organizations.

The 24-year-old appeared in 11 games with the Bruins registering 16 penalty minutes and a minus-1 rating. He was involved in the trade, which saw Max Talbot go from the Avs to the Bruins.

In 19 games with Colorado, Caron picked up two penalty minutes and a minus-1 rating.

Caron was originally a first-round pick of the Boston Bruins (25th overall) in 2009.
