Louis Blues head coach Craig Berube said the team will miss Russian striker Vladimir Tarasenko.
The day before, the Blues traded Tarasenko and Finnish defender Niko Mikkola to the New York Rangers.
“Vlady spent a lot of time in this team and won the Stanley Cup with us. They are both excellent players, we will miss them very much,” the NHL press service quotes Beryube.
Tarasenko played for St. Louis throughout his overseas career, played 644 matches, scored 553 (262 + 291) points.
