BLUES SHOPPING FORWARD SCHENN
Brayden Schenn, forward
The St. Louis Blues have a number of pieces available, for the right price, leading up to the Feb. 25 trade deadline and GM Doug Armstrong is actively looking to make moves.
It has also been widely reported that the Blues are entertaining calls on such players as forwards Alexander Steen and Patrick Maroon, and defencemen Jay Bouwmeester and Carl Gunnarsson, but it appears others could be on the move.
During Thursday night’s “Insider Trading” segment on TSN, Pierre LeBrun reported the Blues are in “full listening mode” on centre Brayden Schenn.
Schenn, who can also play the left wing, has one-year remaining on his contract after this season and comes with a $5.125 million salary cap hit.
The 27-year-old does not own any no-trade protection and would not have a say in where he ends up, if dealt.
With six and a half weeks to go until the deadline, a number of teams will certainly emerge as potential suitors for Schenn, though LeBrun reports the Boston Bruins are already one of the teams interested in his services.
In 37 games with the Blues so far this season, Schenn has registered nine goals and 15 assists for 24 points.
