WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets acquired forward Paul Stastny from the St. Louis Blues on Monday for forward Erik Foley and two draft picks.

Winnipeg also sent a 2018 first-round pick and conditional fourth-round 2020 selection to the Blues.

Stastny, 32, had 12 goals and 28 assists in 63 games this season with St. Louis. He's the son of Hockey Hall of Famer Peter Stastny.

Stastny joins a Winnipeg squad that's second on the Central Division, two points behind the Nashville Predators.

Foley, 20, was taken in the third round, No. 78 overall, by Winnipeg in the 2015 NHL draft. The six-foot, 185-pound American has 15 goals and 19 assists in 32 games with Providence College this season.
