Blues sign defenseman Prosser
Prosser, 28, had spent parts of five seasons with the Minnesota Wild after four years at Colorado College. The 6-foot-2, 203-pound defenseman appeared in 53 regular season games for the Wild last season, when he accumulated eight points (two goals, six assists), 58 penalty minutes and a plus-minus rating of plus-2, and then played in 10 playoff games, where he racked up 12 penalty minutes. The Minnesota native has played in 126 NHL games and has 21 points (three goals, 18 assists), 127 penalty minutes and a plus-minus rating of minus-9. Like the signing of Chris Butler before him, Prosser adds depth to a Blues defense that lost veteran Carlo Colaiacovo from last year’s squad. With Prosser’s addition, St. Louis now has nine defensemen on its roster: Jay Bouwmeester, Butler, Ian Cole, Carl Gunnarsson, Barret Jackman, Jordan Leopold, Alex Pietrangelo, Prosser and Kevin Shattenkirk.
