Blues trade D Jordan Leopold to Blue Jackets for draft pick
The Columbus Blue Jackets have acquired defenseman Jordan Leopold from the St. Louis Blues for a 2016 fifth-round draft pick.
Needing to add some depth to help make up for the injuries, the Blue Jackets acquired defenseman Jordan Leopold from the St. Louis Blues on Saturday in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2016, the two teams announced.
Leopold, 34, has only appeared in seven games for the Blues this season and has yet to record a point, though he does have some solid possession numbers in his limited use. He had one goal and five assists in 27 games last season and is in the final year of two-year $2.25 million contract that he signed with the club before the 2013-14 season.
It's not going to be a season-changing move for the Blue Jackets, but at this point they just need some bodies that can help them out.
