The St. Louis Blues signed veteran forward Scottie Upshall to a one-year contract on Sunday.

Upshall, 33, was not signed earlier by the Blues as an unrestricted free agent after he finished his second season with the team.

In 2016-17, Upshall collected 18 points (10 goals, eight assists) in 73 regular-season games. In 11 postseason appearances, he served eight penalty minutes but recorded no points.

The 6-foot, 200-pound Upshall has appeared in 14 NHL seasons, including stints with Nashville, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Columbus, Florida and St. Louis. The Fort McMurray, Alberta, native owns 266 points (131 goals, 135 assists) and 569 penalty minutes in 696 career regular-season games, as well as 13 points (five goals, eight assists) and 66 penalty minutes in 54 career postseason games.

Upshall was originally drafted sixth overall by Nashville in the 2002 NHL draft.
