The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired Doug Weight and 27-year-old Finnish forward Erkki Rajamaki from the St. Louis Blues. In exchange, Carolina gave to the Blues three draft picks and three players. The package includes forward Mike Zigomanis, Jesse Boulerice, Magnus Kahnberg and the Hurricanes' first-round pick in 2006
In another move the Blues traded centre Mike Sillinger to Nashville Predators for forward Timofei Shishkanov on Sunday.
Sillinger, 34, led the Blues in goals, including a team-high 11 power play markers, and ranked second on the club with 41 points in 48 games.
The Regina, Sask. native also led St. Louis and ranks among NHL leaders with a face-off winning percentage of 55.3 per cent.
"Mike Sillinger is a battle-tested veteran who will help us both offensively and defensively," said Executive Vice President and General Manager David Poile in a statement.
"He is an all-purpose forward who can play in any situation and can play centre or on the wing. He also gives us a top right-handed face-off man to complement Yanic Perreault."
