The David Perron trade rumors have come to fruition. The St. Louis Blues have dealt Perron to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Magnus Paajarvi and a second-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, as reported by the team's official site.
The move will clear Perron's $3.812 million cap hit off the books and give the Blues more room to try and sign Alex Pietrangelo, Chris Stewart and Jake Allen to new contracts.
Before diving too far into salary cap numbers, let's take a look at the player coming to St. Louis.
Paajarvi, a Swedish skater, was Edmonton's first pick (10th overall) in the 2009 NHL Draft. He made his NHL debut in 2010-11, appearing in 80 games while scoring 15 goals and adding 19 assists. The dreaded sophomore slump appeared in Paajarvi's second year. The youngster scored just eight points in 41 games and was sent down to the minors. Paajarvi reclaimed his role in the NHL last season, scoring 16 points in 42 games.
