No doubt about it, the St. Louis Blues have easily been the most disappointing team in the NHL this season. We are not saying that this trade is the one that will save the club, however, it may be encouraging for fans to see that the Blues are working towards finding solutions to get back in the right direction.
On Thursday, just an hour ahead of tonight's matchup against the Washington Capitals, the Blues pulled off a trade. St. Louis acquired goalie Jared Coreau from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for future considerations.
Coreau is expetece to report to the Blues' American Hockey League affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage.
The 27-year-old goalie has taken part in 13 games with the AHL's San Diego Gulls this season, posting a 3-6-2 record to go along with a 3.57 goals-against average and a .895 save percentage.
During his AHL career, the 6-foot-6, 220-pound goaltender has accumulated an 88-54-12 regular-season record and captured the 2017 Calder Cup with the Grand Rapids Griffins.
Coreau has also appeared in 21 career NHL regular-season games, all with the Detroit Red Wings, posting a 5-9-4 record.
