With massive injuries plaguing the Blues already, especially the loss of Robby Fabbri for the season, the Blues needed to do something. What they’ve apparently decided to do as part of Operation Band Aid is to shore up their fourth line.
Believe it to be a 1-year deal for 800K— Dan Murphy (@sportsnetmurph) September 29, 2017
The deal, if complete, hasn’t been announced yet.
It does add some veteran competency to the team, with the added perk of being an addition that just finished two seasons with the Blues. Upshall will return to the fourth line with center Kyle Brodziak and will play with new arrival Chris Thorburn.
