Flames Ship Bouwmeester To Blues

The Blues have acquired veteran defenseman Jay Bouwmeester from the Calgary Flames. In exchange for the 29-year-old, the Blues sent the Flames a first-round pick and a pair of prospects. Defenseman Mark Cundari and goalie Reto Berra are on their way to Calgary's organization. If the Blues do not qualify for the playoffs, the Flames will receive this year's fourth-round pick with the first-round selection being deferred to 2014.
