The Blues have signed Keith Aucoin to a one-year, $625,000 contract. The 34-year-old center joins the Blues after spending the 2012-13 season skating with the New York Islanders. Aucoin has been in the NHL since 2005-06, spending time with the Carolina Hurricanes, Washington Capitals and the previously mentioned Islanders.  Aucoin isn't the flashiest signing on the first day of free agency, but he's a nice addition for the Blues. He helps bolster a weak area of the St. Louis lineup (down the middle) and is capable of chipping in offensively. He contributed 12 points in 41 games with the Islanders last season.

He has skated in 143 career games, 41 of which came in 2012-13. His role in the NHL has been extremely limited. Between 2008-09 and 2011-12, Aucoin appeared in just 49 games over the four year period.  ...
