Blues acquire defenseman Justin Faulk in trade with 'Canes

USA Today Sports 2 months ago

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Blues have acquired All-Star defenseman Justin Faulk from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for defenseman Joel Edmundson and a prospect.

The Blues also announced Tuesday that Faulk signed a seven-year contract extension worth $45.5 million with the defending Stanley Cup champions.

The 27-year-old Faulk had 85 goals and 258 points — club records in both stat categories among defensemen — but was entering the final year of his six-year, $29 million contract. He had been the subject of trade speculation throughout the offseason, and it intensified after the Hurricanes signed veteran defenseman Brett Gardiner to a four-year deal earlier this month.

Carolina also picked up 19-year-old forward Dominik Bokk in the deal and the team swapped late-round draft picks.
