The St. Louis Blues recalled Chris Porter from the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League on Thursday.

Porter, the 29-year-old left winger, has four assists in seven games with the Wolves this season.

He has bounced back and forth between the AHL and NHL over the years, but has substantial experience in the big league, playing 127 regular season games with the Blues over the years, beginning in the 2008-09 season.

His last stint with the Blues came during the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs, when the Blues lost the L.A. Kings in the Western Conference quarter-finals.

    Why hasn’t he been playing with the Blues? Wasn’t he apart of that CPR line last year?

    They acquired paajarvi, lapierre, Roy, and some guy named Brendan morrow.. on top of an already fairly deep offense.

    Hahaha I got called out a couple days ago for being a “back seat driver to Hitch”, because I kept saying to bring back Porter. Bout damn time! CPR LIVES!!!

    As deep as the offense was, Porter should have gotten the nod in the first place. CPR was our best line at the end of the year, and Lapierre is nothing but a pest. Pajaarvi has been unimpressive, but I still think it was time to move Perron. He got benched too much for his bad penalties and lack of effort sometimes.
