Butler Recalled to NHL


November 10, 2016

GLENVIEW, Ill. – The Chicago Wolves announced Thursday that defenseman Chris Butler has been recalled from loan by the St. Louis Blues (NHL).

Serving as team captain, the 30-year-old has appeared in 11 games this season for the Wolves and posted a goal and an assist. Butler almost exclusively has played on Chicago’s top defensive pairing with Brad Hunt, the team’s leading point-getter (3-10–13).

Butler also has a deep NHL résumé, having appeared in 387 NHL regular-season games and accruing 84 points (13G, 71A) and 185 penalty minutes.

The Wolves continue regular-season AHL action with two games against the regining Calder Cup champion Cleveland Monsters on Friday (Nov. 11) and Saturday (Nov. 12) at Quicken Loans Arena. The games will broadcast live in the Chicago area on The U Too (Friday) and CW50 (Saturday). For complete 2016-17 game and broadcast schedules, visit ChicagoWolves.com.
