After months of speculation, it was announced today that star goaltender for the Buffalo Sabres, Ryan Miller, has been traded to the St. Louis Blues. Miller is joined by the Buffalo captain, Steve Ott, in this exchange for St. Louis goaltender, Jaroslav Halak, physical forward Chris Stewart, and prospect William Carrier. St. Louis will also send a first round pick in 2015 and a third round pick in 2016 to Buffalo in the deal.
The deal involves two Olympian goaltenders, with Miller representing the United States in the recent Sochi Olympics and Halak representing his home country of the Czech Republic.
More details to come.
