New Jersey Devils add to roster, acquire F D'Agostini from St. Louis Blues

NEWARK, N.J. - The New Jersey Devils have acquired forward Matt D'Agostini and a conditional seventh-round selection in 2015 from the St. Louis Blues for a conditional fifth-round choice in the same draft.

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello announced the deal for the 26-year-old D'Agostini on Friday. He had a goal and an assist in 16 games with St. Louis this season.

D'Agostini started the season in Germany. He has 45 goals and 46 assists in 254 regular-season games. His best season was in 2010-11 when he had 21 goals and 46 points in 82 games.

A native of Sault Ste. Marie in Ontario, D'Agostini was drafted by Montreal in 2005 and played four seasons with the Canadiens before being dealt to St. Louis in March 2010.

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
