Blues Acquire Bouwmeester from Calgary
The Blues have acquired Jay Bouwmeester from Calgary.


The Blues acquired veteran defenseman Jay Bouwmeester in exchange for a conditional 2013 first-round pick, defenseman Mark Cundari and the rights to goaltender Reto Berra.

If the Blues do not qualify for the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Calgary will receive the Blues' fourth-round selection in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, and the first-round pick will be deferred to the 2014 NHL Draft.

“We've been looking to acquire a top left-handed defenseman and Jay represents that and is an elite player in our game,” said Blues GM Doug Armstrong.

Bouwmeester, 29, has dressed in 33 games for the Flames this season, posting 15 points (six goals, nine assists) and 16 penalty minutes while ranking 13th among all defenseman in time on ice per game (25:09).

The 6-foot-4, 212-pound defenseman has appeared in 10 National Hockey League (NHL) season, including stints with Florida and Calgary, recording 300 points (71 goals, 229 assists) and 463 penalty minutes in 750 career games.

In addition, Bouwmeester has played in 621 consecutive NHL games.

The Edmonton, Alberta native was originally drafted by Florida in the first round (third overall) of the 2002 NHL Draft.

Bouwmeester is not considered a roster player pending immigration.
