The St. Louis Blues have traded veteran forward Bill Guerin to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for a first-round draft pick in 2007, forward Ville Nieminen and prospect Jay Barriball. Guerin is making US$2 million this season and will become an unrestricted free agent July 1. The 36-year-old has recorded 28 goals and 19 assists in 61 games this season.

In 1,010 career games with New Jersey, Edmonton, Boston and St. Louis, he has collected 356 goals and 354 assists.

It's the second big move for the Blues in the last few days. On Sunday, they traded forward Keith Tkachuk to Atlanta.

Nieminen has a goal and an assist in 30 games this season. Barriball, a forward who was San Jose's seventh-round pick in 2006, is currently playing with the University of Minnesota.
