Habs trade Halak to the Blues
The Montreal Canadiens have traded goaltender Jaroslav Halak to the St. Louis Blues for a pair of prospects.
The 21-year old Eller scored two goals in seven games with the Blues last season, and scored 18 goals in 70 games for the AHL’s Peoria Rivermen.
The 20-year old Schultz played 70 games for the Calgary Hitmen last year, scoring 24 goals with 31 assists.
Halak had a spectacular playoff run, leading Montreal to upset wins over the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins.
