      Wild's Chris Porter: Scores first goal

      Porter scored his first goal of the season and had five hits in Tuesday's win over Winnipeg. Porter has been mostly used for his defense on a checking line, but will be asked to do more with the puck with injuries to Zach Parise and Justin Fontaine. Porter got 1:43 on the penalty kill unit, so he'll have some value on special teams as well. However, don't expect him to be a major contributor on offense.

    • Claimed by Wild

      News: Chris Porter was claimed off waivers by the Wild on Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
      Analysis: Chris Porter was expected to pass through waivers and ultimately serve as forward depth at the AHL level for the Flyers. However, the Wild saw promise in the 31-year-old winger, who reportedly has been one of the stand out players at Flyers camp. He will now head to Minnesota, where he will likely assume a bottom-six role at the start of the 2015-16 campaign with the Wild.
    • Waived by Flyers

      News: The Flyers waived Chris Porter on Wednesday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
      Analysis: As a 31-year-old who's never been able to catch on as a full-time NHLer, Chris Porter is expected to pass through waivers and serve as forward depth at the AHL level.
    • Porter Inks One-Year Deal With Flyers

      News: Chris Porter signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flyers on Saturday.
      Analysis: Chris Porter suited up for 24 games with the Blues last season, managing to record a mere two points (one goal, one assist) in those contests. He will likely once again split time between the AHL and NHL in 2015-16, and will provide the Flyers with organizational depth at forward in case of injury.
    • Blues' Porter Records Assist In Win

      News: Chris Porter recorded an assist in Wednesday's Game 4 victory over the Wild.
      Analysis: Chris Porter made the most of his first appearance of the postseason, setting up Ryan Reaves for the game's first goal while chipping in a team-high five hits. The assist was Porter's first point since Dec. 8.
    • Blues' Porter Will Return To Lineup Saturday

      News: Chris Porter will return to the Blues lineup Saturday against the Penguins.
      Analysis: Chris Porter has been out of the Blues' lineup with an ankle injury since Dec. 30. He'll likely slot into a bottom-six role upon his return. Porter has only tallied two points through 14 games with the Blues this season.
    • Blues' Porter Activated From IR

      News: Chris Porter (ankle) was activated from injured reserve ahead of Tuesday's game against the Stars, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports..
      Analysis: Chris Porter has been fully recovered from the ankle injury for a while now, but the Blues didn't have an opening available for him in the lineup until Tuesday. It looks like coach Ken Hitchcock could slot Porter into a bottom-six role, with Joakim Lindstrom heading to the press box in his place. With only two points in 14 games this season, Porter's return shouldn't make much waves in the fantasy realm.
    • Blues' Porter Back To 100 Percent

      News: Chris Porter (ankle) is in the "100 percent range" according to coach Ken Hitchcock.
      Analysis: Hitchcock indicated that a return to the lineup would come soon, so Chris Porter seems likely to return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Stars. He hasn't played since December and has just two points in 14 contests, so it's possible the winger comes back in a reduced role initially.
    • Blues' Porter Nearing Return

      News: Chris Porter (ankle) is traveling with the Blues on their current road trip, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
      Analysis: Chris Porter hasn't played since Dec. 29, but looks like he's close to being ready for the Blues. It remains to be seen where he would slot into the lineup upon his activation from injured reserve, as the Blues have been performing at a high level in his absence. If Porter isn't able to reclaim his usual role in the team's bottom six, he'd likely be forced to serve as a healthy scratch on most occasions.
    • Blues' Porter Joins Full Group Monday

      News: Chris Porter (ankle) resumed skating with the full group Monday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
      Analysis: Chris Porter appears just about fully recovered from the broken ankle he suffered Dec. 29 and could be activated from injured reserve later this week. Once he's added back to the 23-man roster, Porter would likely see limited ice time in a bottom-six role for the Blues.
