Blues talking trade on David Perron

St Louis Blues v Los Angeles Kings - Game Three

LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 04: Jonathan Quick #32 of the Los Angeles Kings loses his mask as David Perron #57 of the St. Louis Blues crashes the net in front of Drew Doughty #8 during the third period in a 1-0 win over the St. Louis Blues in Game Three of the Western Conference Quarterfinals during the 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Staples Center on May 4, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.

Jaroslav Halak isn’t the only player the Blues might be looking to move at the draft.

Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Blues have taken calls on forward David Perron.

A pesky point-scoring winger, Perron fell out of favor with coach Ken Hitchcock before the playoffs as he was demoted to the fourth line in the Blues’ playoff-clinching game. This past season, he had 10 goals and 15 assists while not missing a game. In the playoffs, things got tougher as he had just two assists in St. Louis’ six-game series loss to Los Angeles.

Perron has three years left on his deal with St. Louis with a healthy cap hit of just over $3.8 million per season. With the Blues still needing to sign Alex Pietrangelo to a long-term deal as well as forward Chris Stewart, moving Perron could help them out cap and cash-wise.
