Blues sign Landon Ferraro to one-year, two-way deal
The Boston Bruins decided not to give Landon Ferraro a qualifying offer, making him an unrestricted free agent. On Friday, the St. Louis Blues decided to sign the 24-year-old forward.
The Blues announced that they signed Ferraro to a one-year, two-way contract.
For Ferraro, this marks the third NHL team of his career. Originally a second-round pick of the Red Wings in 2009, Ferraro appeared in 10 games for Detroit last season, before he was placed on waivers.
The Bruins claimed him off waivers, then put him in the lineup for 58 games, mostly in a bottom-six, fourth line role, which included time on the Boston penalty kill. He scored five goals and 10 points.
Now with St. Louis, he could give the Blues additional depth among their bottom six forwards, which recently kept Kyle Brodziak on a two-year, $1.9 million contract extension.
