ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues President John Davidson announced today the team has acquired defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo (koh-lee-A-KOH-voh) and center Alexander Steen from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Lee Stempniak.

“We feel we have improved our club today for both the short and long term by adding Carlo and Alex,” said Davidson. “Carlo is solid two-way defenseman and will provide depth to our blueline and Alex can play center or wing and can score at the NHL level.”

“Lee has done a tremendous job in St. Louis. He is a classy individual and we would like to thank him for all of his work on and off the ice that he has provided to the St. Louis Blues.”

Colaiacovo, 25, has played in 10 games this season with the Maple Leafs, recording one assist and six penalty minutes. The 6-1, 200-pound defenseman is in his sixth NHL season, playing in 111 games, registering 33 points (12 goals, 21 assists) along with 57 penalty minutes.
