    Blues' Chris Butler: Assigned to minors

    Butler has been loaned to AHL Chicago. Butler is a part-time NHLer and that role isn't likely to change as Butler is 29 years old and still hasn't secured a stable role despite the Blues counting as the third team he's played for since entering the league in 2005.

    Blues' Chris Butler: Recalled by Blues on Wednesday

    Butler was recalled from AHL Chicago by the Blues on Wednesday. The Blues placed Robby Fabbri (concussion) on IR on Wednesday, which opened up a spot for Butler on their 23-man roster. If Butler enters the Blues' lineup for Thursday's tilt against the Oilers, it will likely be as a third-pairing defenseman.

    Analysis: Chris Butler, who racked up nine points and 23 penalty minutes in 33 games with the Blues this past season, will reprise his depth blueliner role with the team, though his fantasy utility is restricted to deeper formats.

    News: Chris Butler collected an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Wild.
    Analysis: Chris Butler finished the game with the second-lowest TOI (19:18) among the Blues' defensemen, which puts his status on some shaky ground heading into the postseason. With coach Ken Hitchcock resting both of his star blueliners, Alex Pietrangelo and Kevin Shattenkirk, in Saturday's regular-season finale, Butler seems at risk of opening the first round of the playoffs in the press box.
  • Blues' Butler Nets Goal In Return To Lineup

    News: Chris Butler tallied a shorthanded goal in his return to the lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs.
    Analysis: With Jay Bouwmeester a late scratch due to an illness, Chris Butler made just his third appearance in a little over two weeks. Though he had a productive outing Saturday, Butler doesn't figure to enjoy a stranglehold on a regular lineup spot going forward, especially with Zbynek Michalek (concussion) and Kevin Shattenkirk (abdominal surgery) nearing returns to action.
  • Blues' Butler Chips In With Assist Tuesday

    News: Chris Butler attempted three shots and contributed the assist on Jaden Schwartz's overtime game-winner Tuesday against the Lightning.
    Analysis: Kevin Shattenkirk appears set to miss significant time due to abdominal surgery, opening up a regular lineup spot for Chris Butler in the interim. Butler turned in a productive showing in his return to active duty, but he won't have nearly the fantasy upside that Shattenkirk provided for owners. Over 21 games this season, Butler has a mere five points.
  • Blues' Butler Finding Offense

    News: Chris Butler scored a goal for the second consecutive night in Tuesday's loss to Nashville.
    Analysis: Despite not seeing any kind of increase in ice time over these two games -- he still skated only 13:30 on Tuesday, a miserably low amount for a blueliner -- Chris Butler has provided an offensive spark for the Blues. However, with a career high of 21 points -- and just four this year -- he's not likely to keep it up.

    Analysis: Chris Butler has claimed a regular spot in the St. Louis lineup while Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) remains unavailable, but his stay-at-home tendencies won't yield much value most nights. He's produced only three points in his 15 games this season.
