Veteran forward signs with the Blues; Pittsburgh, Chicago pull off a trade

20 novembre 2019
With Vladimir Tarasenko on the shelf and Sammy Blais about to undergo wrist surgery, St. Louis got one of its early season PTOs signed for the year.

While F Jamie McGinn was released, F Troy Brouwer is now under contract with the Blues for the rest of the season, with a salary of $750,000. The 34-year-old Brouwer has 362 points in 838 NHL games. He won a Stanley Cup with Chicago in 2010. This will be his second stint with the Blues, having been a part of the 2015-16 team, playing 82 games and producing 39 points. The Blues are looking at him as a grinding depth forward who can eat up some bottom six minutes, though he also has experience on the power play with 116 of his career points coming on the man advantage.



Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Chicago Blackhawks have pulled off a one-for-one trade. Going to Chicago is forward Joseph Cramarossa, while Pittsburgh picks up forward Graham Knott. Cramarossa, 27, had three points (two goals, one assist) in nine games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this AHL season. Knott, 22, has been playing with the Indy Fuel of the ECHL. He has five goals and nine points in 12 games. Cramarossa will report to the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL.
