The St. Louis Blues have added some depth at forward, signing veteran winger Brenden Morrow to a one-year contract worth $1.5 million.

Morrow scored 12 goals and 13 assists in 44 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Dallas Stars in 2012-13.

"We had had conversations in July," Blues GM Doug Armstrong told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com on Monday. "We had to get Alex Pietrangelo signed, and didn't know how much money would be available after that. We told Brenden if he signed elsewhere we would understand. But we were interested."

Morrow was traded to Pittsburgh prior to the trade deadline along with a third-round pick, in exchange for Joe Morrow and a fifth-round pick in 2013.

"The most dangerous animal is a wounded animal," said Armstrong. "I thought he played really well in Pittsburgh until he got hurt last season. I spoke to people in Pittsburgh about him."

Originally selected 25th overall by the Stars at the 1997 NHL Entry Draft, Morrow has scored 249 goals and 293 assists in 850 career games. Morrow was also a part of Canada's gold medal winning team at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
