The Blues have traded goaltender Brian Elliott to the Calgary Flames in exchange for a second round pick this season, and a conditional third round pick in 2018. The second rounder this year is the 35th overall selection.

Elliott had a 23-8-6 record with a 2.07 goals against average this past season. His save percentage of .930 was the best in the NHL. In the playoffs, he started all but one game going 9-9 with a 2.44 goals against  average and .921 save percentage.

The trade of Elliott means the Blues are committing to Jake Allen as their number one goaltender.
