The Montreal Canadiens have traded goaltender Jaroslav Halak to the St. Louis Blues, according to TSN.CA.
The Habs receive defenceman Lars Eller and forward Ian Schultz.
Halak led the Canadiens on their surprising playoff run, upending heavy favorites Washington and Penguins.
Halak, 25, went 26-13-5 in the regular season with a 2.40 goals against average.
Halak split goaltending duties with Carey Price and eventually won the No. 1 job late in the season. Halak is scheduled to become a restricted free agent this summer which fueled talk over the past couple weeks that the Canadiens would look to sell high and deal Halak who is believed to be seeking a Marc Andre Fleury type of contract.
Halak is represented by Allan Walsh who also represents Fleury. Many believe that Halak’s price tag is in the $5 million range.
