It was reported this past week that the St. Louis Blues were close to signing veteran forward Scottie Upshall following the season-ending injury to Robby Fabbri. However, no contract has officially been signed, but this could change quickly.
The Blues announced on Saturday that Upshall will be arriving in St. Louis today to meet with general manager Doug Armstrong and coach Mike Yeo.
Upshall was a member of the Blues for the past two seasons before going unsigned this summer as a free agent. He ended up getting a professional tryout contract with the Vancouver Canucks, but nothing came of it since the Canadian team is focused on its younger players.
For now, Upshall has agreed to a PTO with the club to be able to practice, before making a deal on a contract.
In 73 games this past season Upshall scored 10 goals and added eight assists.
