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.
It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
