The St. Louis Blues signed forward Josh Leivo to a one-year contract on Thursday.

Leivo had one goal and two assists in seven games with the Carolina Hurricanes last season and spent the majority of the year with the AHL's Chicago Wolves registering 46 points (22 goals and 24 assists) in 54 games.

He also added 29 points (15 goals and 14 assists) during the AHL post-season and captured the Jack A. Butterfield Trophy as playoff MVP as the Wolves won the Calder Cup.

The 29-year-old from Innisfil, Ont., has 77 points (38 goals and 39 assists) in 214 career NHL games with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames and Hurricanes. He was drafted in the third round, 86th overall, by Toronto in 2011.
