Blues sign Bolduc on two-day pact

Former St. Louis Blues fourth-round draft pick Alexandre Bolduc is heading back to where it all started.

However, the 28-year-old Bolduc will suit up for the first time with the Blues on this deal. In his prior stint with the club, he failed to make an appearance, instead going unsigned and making it to the NHL through the ECHL’s Bakersfield Condors.

In his first stint in the AHL, where the Quebec native suited up with then-Vancouver affiliate Manitoba Moose, Bolduc proved he could compete at the AHL level, and it lead to a contract extension.

A veteran of 312 career AHL games, Bolduc has produced 72 goals and 101 assists over that period. In addition, over 39 postseason games, Bolduc has added 11 goals and five helpers.

At 28, and on a one-year deal, Bolduc will be looking to make his way up to the big leagues and prove he’s an NHL regular. In all likelihood, Bolduc will spend some time with the Wolves before the season is through. Although the deal is a two-way contract, Bolduc is guaranteed $325,000 this season.
