|(9/20/16) Sterling secured a professional tryout agreement with St. Louis on Tuesday.|
Sterling is a known quantity for the Blues, having been part of their organization during the 2011-12 season. Since that time he has played abroad, most recently with Salzburg EC of the Austrian league. During his past two campaigns, the 32-year-old averaged over a point per game, which no doubt put him back on the team's radar. There will be a lot of competition for those bottom-six roster spots, but Sterling's experience in Europe could give him the inside edge.
