Blues activate defenseman Redden

The St. Louis Blues activated defenseman Wade Redden, making the veteran blueliner a possibility for their next game, Thursday against the Nashville Predators.

Redden signed a one-year contract with the Blues on Sunday after his contract was bought out by the New York Rangers.

To make room on the roster, the Blues sent defenseman Ian Cole to their American Hockey League team, the Peoria Rivermen. Cole had one assist and two penalty minutes in three games this season.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
