ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues President John Davidson announced today the team has claimed forward B.J. Crombeen on waivers from the Dallas Stars.
Crombeen, 23, has appeared in 15 games with Dallas this season, posting five points (one goal, four assists) along with 26 penalty minutes. The 6-2, 212-pound right winger has skated in 23 career NHL games, recording seven points (one goal, six assists) and 65 penalty minutes. The Denver, Colorado native was originally Dallas’ second round selection, 54th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
Crombeen’s father, Mike Crombeen, played five seasons with the Blues from 1978-83. Mike Crombeen scored one of the biggest goals in Blues history when he netted a series clinching double overtime goal against Pittsburgh in the first round of the 1981 playoffs.
B.J. and Mike would be the third father and son combination to play for the Blues. Bob and Brent Johnson were the first and Peter and Yan Stastny were the second.
