Wild Claim Chris Porter off of Waivers

The Minnesota Wild have claimed former Fighting Sioux forward Chris Porter off of waivers from the Philadelphia Flyers. Porter is a former teammate of Wild forward Zach Parise.
Jeff Neiburg, Daily News Staff Writer - The Flyers lost a little bit of organizational depth Thursday afternoon when one of the two players they put on waivers yesterday failed to clear.

Chris Porter, who scored two goals in three preseason games, was claimed off of waivers by the Minnesota Wild. Colin McDonald, who the Flyers also waived yesterday, cleared.

Michael Russo talked to Zach Parise about the move:

“He’s a player who I think can help us and I’m happy for him that he gets to come back here and play,” Parise said of Porter, 31, an energy-winger who played against the Wild last season for St. Louis.

“He’s a big guy, he’s fast, he plays physical, so I think that’s going to fit in well with us and with Carts. He knows what his job is out there. There are no gray areas. He knows what he’s supposed to do. Just as important, he’s a great guy.”
