Blues Aquire Buchnevich from Rangers for Blais, Pick

Cover picture for the articleThe deal comes during a fraught offseason for Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong, who is facing the potential loss of three unrestricted free agents in Jaden Schwartz, Mike Hoffman, and Tyler Bozak, as well as contentious trade negotiations after star forward Vladimir Tarasenko requested a move out of St. Louis. In Buchnevich, 26, the Blues add a 20-goal scorer to a team that had just one player (Ryan O’Reilly) cross that threshold last season. The Rangers add grit in Blais, 25, as well as a second-round pick in a strong draft class. But early speculation suggests the move may be a salary cap clearing venture for something bigger down the line.
