The St. Louis Blues have traded forward Ryan Reaves, and a second-round pick to the Pittsburgh Penguins for pick No. 31 and forward Oskar Sundqvist.

The Blues then used pick No. 31 to draft forward Klim Kostin.

Reaves, 30, is known more for his grit than his scoring. In 80 games this past season with the Blues he had seven goals, 13 points and 104 penalty minutes.

Sundqvist, 23, was a third-round pick by the Penguins in 2012. He has played in 28 NHL games over the past two seasons, combining for one goal and four points.
