The St. Louis Blues might just be done with their off-season moves after reportedly signing defenseman Nate Prosser to a two-way, two-year deal.

(NHL.com’s Lou Korac notes that the Blues haven’t made it official, yet his agent has. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Jeremy Rutherford reports that it’s two-way.)

Rutherford points out some interesting history between the Blues and Prosser, who’s spent all of his NHL years with the Wild.

At 31, Prosser is what he is: a depth defenseman who hasn’t received many shifts at the top level lately. Some wonder if he’s really NHL material at this point, but perhaps the Blues value that experience.

Again, the Blues’ top-level roster looks about full, so GM Doug Armstrong’s work is likely done heading into 2017-18.
