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

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
