Chris Morehouse of the Saint Mary’s Huskies will try to earn an NHL contract with the St. Louis Blues next week.

The 22-year-old forward from Amherst will compete with the Blues at an eight-team NHL prospects tournament in Traverse City, Mich., starting Sunday. He also participated in a prospects orientation camp in St. Louis in July.

Morehouse had five goals and eight assists for 13 points in 28 games as a rookie last season, helping Saint Mary’s to an Atlantic University Sport championship.

The five-foot-nine, 180-pounder spent three years in the QMJHL with the Moncton Wildcats and won the Canadian Hockey League’s humanitarian of the year award in 2007.
