Senators Trade Logan Brown to Blues for Sanford and a Conditional Pick

The St. Louis Blues have traded for Logan Brown from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for Zach Sanford and a conditional pick.

As per a couple of reports on Saturday, and then confirmed by both the Senators and Blues’ organizations, the Ottawa Senators have finally move disgruntled forward Logan Brown off their roster. He’s been traded to the St. Louis Blues and Elliotte Friedman reports, “It is indeed Logan Brown to STL for Zach Sanford and a conditional pick that will be removed if Brown plays 30 NHL games.”

The Senators have moved a player that didn’t want to be there and in return, pick up Sanford, who has spent the past three-plus seasons with the Blues. Sanford registered 16 points (10 goals, six assists) and 25 penalty minutes over 52 games with St. Louis in 2020-21 and played in the Blues’ four post-season contests (he registered no points). Sanford will add some toughness and much-needed experience to the Sens roster, while the Blues get a younger player who needed a change of scenery. Brown is a St. Louis native.

Brown was a former first-round pick of Ottawa (11th overall) in 2016 but has yet to make a full-time career in the NHL. He’s shown flashes of being a regular, but it just hasn’t panned out to date. Still only 23 years old, Brown recently re-signed a one-year, two-way contract worth the league minimum of $750K. He will be a restricted free agent against next summer and this move actually helps the Blues salary cap situation.

This was really a financial deal for the Blues with the potential for some good upside if Brown turns into the player everyone is hoping he could be. Sanford has one year left on a deal that pays him $2 million before he becomes a UFA at the end of the season.
