Devils acquire Blues' D'Agostini
New Jersey Devils acquire St. Louis Blues' Matt D'Agostini.

The New Jersey Devils added a veteran forward for the stretch run, acquiring Matt D'Agostini from the St. Louis Blues on Friday for a conditional fourth- or fifth-round draft pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

The Devils will also receive a conditional seventh-round pick in 2015.

The 26-year-old right wing has one goal and one assist in 16 games this season.

D'Agostini was a sixth-round pick of the Montreal Canadiens in the 2005 NHL Draft. In 254 NHL games over parts of six seasons for the Canadiens and Blues, he has 45 goals and 91 points.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
