Butler signed a one-year $675,000 deal with the Blues on Wednesday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Butler, who racked up nine points and 23 penalty minutes in 33 games with the Blues this past season, will reprise his depth blueliner role with the team, though his fantasy utility is restricted to deeper formats.

Butler collected an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Wild.

Butler finished the game with the second-lowest TOI (19:18) among the Blues' defensemen, which puts his status on some shaky ground heading into the postseason. With coach Ken Hitchcock resting both of his star blueliners, Alex Pietrangelo and Kevin Shattenkirk, in Saturday's regular-season finale, Butler seems at risk of opening the first round of the playoffs in the press box.

Butler tallied a shorthanded goal in his return to the lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs.

With Jay Bouwmeester a late scratch due to an illness, Butler made just his third appearance in a little over two weeks. Though he had a productive outing Saturday, Butler doesn't figure to enjoy a stranglehold on a regular lineup spot going forward, especially with Zbynek Michalek (concussion) and Kevin Shattenkirk (abdominal surgery) nearing returns to action.

Butler attempted three shots and contributed the assist on Jaden Schwartz's overtime game-winner Tuesday against the Lightning.

Kevin Shattenkirk appears set to miss significant time due to abdominal surgery, opening up a regular lineup spot for Butler in the interim. Butler turned in a productive showing in his return to active duty, but he won't have nearly the fantasy upside that Shattenkirk provided for owners. Over 21 games this season, Butler has a mere five points.

Butler scored a goal for the second consecutive night in Tuesday's loss to Nashville.

Despite not seeing any kind of increase in ice time over these two games -- he still skated only 13:30 on Tuesday, miserably low time for a blueliner -- Butler has provided an offensive spark for the Blues. However, with a career high of 21 points -- and just four this year -- he's not likely to keep it up.
