ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues strengthened their blue-line for another playoff run by acquiring Zbynek Michalek from the Arizona Coyotes.

The Blues sent prospect Maxime Letunov to Arizona in exchange for Michalek and a conditional third-round pick.

Michalek, 32, has blocked 130 shots and put up two goals and six assists in 53 games this season.

He is out with an upper-body injury but has said he's feeling better and could be back soon for St. Louis.

Michalek is a pending unrestricted free agent.

Letunov is a 19-year-old playing in the USHL who was the Blues' second-round pick in last year's draft.
