ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues place goaltender Manny Legace on waivers.
The move on Friday gives other teams the opportunity to claim the 36-year-old goalie. Otherwise, Blues president John Davidson says Legace will be sent to Peoria of the American Hockey League. Legace is a 10-year veteran who was an all-star last season, when he was 27-25-8 with a 2.41 goals against average.
This year, he has struggled at times. He is 13-9-2 with a 3.18 goals-against average and an .885 save percentage. Chris Mason has taken over as the Blues' top goalie.
Legace has started just one game since Jan. 19, in Detroit on Monday. He was pulled in the second period after giving up three goals on eight shots. The Blues eventually lost 4-3 in a shootout.
