ST. LOUIS (AP) -The St. Louis Blues acquired Jonathan Filewich from Pittsburgh for a conditional sixth-round draft pick in 2010.

The 24-year-old forward has two goals and two assists in 19 games this season with Pittsburgh's AHL affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Last season, the winger played five games with the Penguins and had 10 goals and 21 assists in 71 AHL games.

Filewich was drafted by Pittsburgh in the third round, 70th overall, in 2003. He will report to the Blues' AHL team in Peoria, Ill.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
