St. Louis and Vancouver swapped minor leaguers Wednesday afternoon with Yan Stastny heading to the Canucks' organization and Pierre-Cedric Labrie going to the Blues.
Stastny, who appeared in four games for the Blues this season, had 27 points in 49 games for the Peoria Rivermen. He has 16 points in 91 NHL games. Labrie had only six points, a minus-13 and 69 penalty minutes rating in 45 games for the Manitoba Moose.
I'm here to develop a winning culture and a winning team. There is a bright future ahead of this team. A lot of young, great hockey players here and on the way … a fan base that's passionate about the game of hockey.
— Dan Bylsma after being introduced as new coach of the Buffalo Sabres
