/ St. Louis Blues
ST. LOUIS - On Monday night, the Blues acquired a first-round pick in 2017, a conditional second round pick, Zach Sanford and Brad Malone from the Washington Capitals in exchange for Kevin Shattenkirk and Pheonix Copley.
The player likely to make the most immediate impact for the Blues in the deal is Sanford, a 22-year-old Salem, Massachusetts native who made his NHL debut this season with the Capitals. At 6-foot-4 and 203 pounds, Sanford is a big player that can play center or the wing. He's drawn comparisons to Tage Thompson, a 6-foot-5 center the Blues selected with the 26th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Draft last summer.

Club gets 2017 1st round pick, conditional 2nd, Sanford and Malone
/ St. Louis Blues
ST. LOUIS - For several months or more, Kevin Shattenkirk's name had been the subject of constant trade speculation.
On Monday, that speculation was resolved as the Blues dealt Shattenkirk and goalie Pheonix Copley to the Washington Capitals in exchange for a first-round pick in 2017, a conditional second-round pick and forwards Zach Sanford and Brad Malone.
The Blues and Oilers will meet tonight for the final time this season. Thus far, the Blues are winless against the Oilers in 2016-17, though they did earn a point in a 3-2 overtime loss in their most recent clash (Dec. 19). In the big picture, the Blues have fared well against the Oilers, earning wins in eight of their last 11 overall and 10 of their last 12 at Scottrade Center. Edmonton is a bit cool at the moment, losing three of their last four, but Connor McDavid has remained hot. The League's leader with 71 points, McDavid has three goals and 11 points over his last eight games. If the Blues can shut him down, they'll be in good shape as the Oilers are 8-10-3 when McDavid is held pointless this season.
ST. LOUIS - St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the Blues have recalled forward Ivan Barbashev from their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Chicago Wolves.

In celebration of its centennial season, the NHL released its list of the 100 Greatest Players to play the game. In the coming weeks, we'll be profiling each of the 14 former Blues to be named to that list.
Four of the scariest words in NHL history: "An Al MacInnis' Slapshot."

St. Louis made playoff appearances in each of the 10 seasons MacInnis wore the Blue Note, including in 1999 when the defenseman won the Norris Trophy as the League's top defenseman.
CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks defeated the St. Louis Blues 4-2 at United Center on Sunday, winning their fourth straight game on a late goal by Artem Anisimov.
