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.
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.
