ST. LOUIS -- With goalie Brian Elliott week-to-week because of a lower-body injury he sustained Tuesday, the St. Louis Blues have announced they will bring in Martin Brodeur on a tryout basis.

Elliott's injury will not require surgery, according to the Blues. With Elliott for an undetermined time frame, St. Louis might turn to Brodeur to help rookie Jake Allen handle the workload.

Brodeur, 42, will join the Blues on Friday for a morning skate prior to their game against the Edmonton Oilers at Scottrade Center. He will continue to practice for at least a week before St. Louis decides whether to offer him a contract.

The Blues also recalled goalie Jordan Binnington from the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League on Wednesday.

"I think we looked at our schedule and we're playing four games a week," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock told "We have [Binnington] in the American Hockey League who's just getting his career started. We've got [Niklas Lundstrom with the Alaska Aces] in the East Coast Hockey League who's just getting his career started, and we've got [Allen] in the NHL who's getting his career started.

"In fairness to all three goalies, they need to have some support. Marty offers, depending on how he looks, he offers organizational support. I have a background with him, so we know each other."

VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Canucks celebrated the life and legacy of former coach, general manager and president Pat Quinn with a moment of silence and singing of "Danny Boy" prior to playing the New Jersey Devils at Rogers Arena on Tuesday.

Quinn died at age 71 Sunday after a lengthy illness.

The Canucks will wear decals on their helmets with the initials "PQ" inside a four-leaf clover for the rest of the season, a fitting nod to a man known to many as "The Big Irishman," and there are plans to honor Quinn with a larger ceremony at a game later in the season.

After an emotional two days, singer Mark Donnelly hit all the right notes as a video tribute played on the scoreboard and the spotlight shone on Quinn's image in his spot in the Canucks' Ring of Honor.
