TORONTO — The Toronto Maple Leafs traded their final pending unrestricted free agent by sending Olli Jokinen to the St. Louis Blues.

The Leafs received forward Joakim Lindstrom and a conditional sixth-round pick.

Jokinen, acquired from the Predators in the Feb. 15 deal that sent Cody Franson and Mike Santorelli to Nashville, played six games with the Leafs and registered one assist.

The 36-year-old centre will join his 10th NHL team after stints with the Los Angeles Kings, New York Islanders, Florida Panthers, Arizona Coyotes, Calgary Flames, New York Rangers, Winnipeg Jets, Predators and Leafs.

Jokinen has appeared in just six playoff games in his career.

Lindstrom, 31, has three goals and three assists in 34 games this season and is set to become an unrestricted free agent.

The return was not immediately known.
