The St. Louis Blues made just two minor moves ahead of the NHL trading deadline by acquring forward Matt D’Agostino and Pierre-Cedric Labrie. D’Agostino was a sixth round pick for the Canadiens in 2005 and has two goals and two assists in 40 games with Montreal this season. He’ll join the Blues tonight in Dallas. Labrie comes over in a trade with Vancouver. He will head right to Peoria, the Blues’ minor league team.
Just as last year, the Blues did not make any trades deciding to stick with what they have. It worked last year as the team got hot and was able to slide into a playoff spot last year.
The Blues are three points behind Detroit for the 8th and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
