ST. LOUIS — GM Doug Armstrong has announced a move with the Edmonton Oilers that will bring goaltender Anders Nilsson to St. Louis and send goaltender Niklas Lundstrom and a 2016 fifth round draft pick to Edmonton.
Nilsson is 25 years of age and played in 26 games this season for the Oilers, where he posted a 10-12-2 record, a 3.14 GAA and a .901 save percentage mark. He made his first splash in the NHL with the New York Islanders, where he played in 23 games and went 9-9-2. The Islanders drafted Nilsson in the third round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
Niklas Lundstrom, age 23, did not start a game for the Blues, who drafted him in the fifth round of the 2011 Entry Draft. Lundstrom split time between the Elmira Jackals of the ECHL and the Blues’ affiliate Chicago Wolves. He went 8-3-0 in 13 games for the Jackals while posting a 1-1-0 mark in Chicago.
