Blues, Oilers complete swap of goalies

The St. Louis Blues have acquired goaltender Anders Nilsson from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for goaltender Niklas Lundstrom and a 2016 fifth-round draft pick.

Nilsson will be assigned to the Blues’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Chicago Wolves.

Nilsson, 24, has appeared in two games with the AHL’s Bakersfield Condors this season, going 2-0-0 with a 2.01 goals-against average and a .935 save percentage. In 77 career AHL appearances with Bakersfield and Bridgeport, Nilsson has a record of 37-33-4 with a 2.71 GAA, a .908 save percentage and four shutouts.

Nilsson has gone 10-12-2 (3.14, .901) in 26 games with Edmonton this season, and shows a mark of 19-21-4 (3.10, .900) with one shutout in 49 career NHL outings with the Oilers and the New York Islanders.

Nilsson was originally drafted by the Islanders in 2009 (third round, 62nd overall).
