The Blues have recalled Chris Butler from Chicago (AHL).
Butler has recorded 10 points (2G / 8A) in 27 games with the Wolves this season. He didn’t have a point in two games with the Blues earlier this season, but it looks like he could get another chance with Jay Boumeester out. Butler has 13 goals and 71 assists (84 points) in 384 career NHL games.
Butler (lower-body) will play after being listed as doubtful.
Butler took part in the Flames' morning skate and will be in the lineup tonight in Edmonton. Butler has 10 points (2G / 8A) with a minus-17 rating in 59 games this season. Butler has been a big minutes eater for the Flames this season, averaging 19:48 TOI per game.
The Calgary Flames have officially traded defenceman Robyn Regehr to the Buffalo Sabres along with Ales Kotalik and a 2012 second round draft pick in exchange for defenceman Chris Butler and forward Paul Byron. The deal included all the particulars we had heard last night, with the only difference being the second round pick heading Buffalo's way instead of vice versa.
