(HockeySTL) -- The Blues have acquired forward Adam Cracknell from Columbus in exchange for future considerations, the team announced Thursday afternoon. Cracknell will report to the Blues’ AHL affiliate Chicago Wolves.
Cracknell, 29, signed with Los Angeles this past summer but was unable to crack the Kings’ lineup out of training camp. He was claimed off of waivers by Columbus on Oct. 7 and played in 17 games with the Blue Jackets, registering just one point. He also played 18 games with the Springfield Falcons, Columbus’ AHL affiliate, tallying three goals, seven points.
Before signing with the Kings in the offseason, Cracknell had spent the first five seasons of his professional career in the Blues’ organization, making his NHL debut with St. Louis in 2010. During those five seasons, Cracknell dressed in 65 regular season games with the Blues, scoring six goals and tallying 16 points.
“Very excited to be back with the St. Louis Blues organization again,” Cracknell posted on Twitter after the trade announcement.
Cracknell could see time with the Blues later in the season, with NHL rosters expanding following the Mar. 2 trade deadline.
