The Blues and Flames make a trade

The Calgary Flames traded defenseman Jay Bouwmeester to the St. Louis Blues on Monday night.

In return, the Flames got a first-round pick and two prospects - defenseman Mark Cundari and goaltender Reto Berra.

If St. Louis does not qualify for this year's playoffs, the Flames will receive St. Louis' fourth-round selection in this summer's draft, with the first-round pick being deferred to 2014.

Bouwmeester, who has an annual cap hit of $6.68 million through to the end of next season, has six goals and nine assists in 33 games in 2013.
