The Ottawa Senators have acquired forward Zach Sanford from the St. Louis Blues in exchange for forward Logan Brown and a conditional fourth-round draft pick.

If Brown plays more than 30 regular-season games in 2021-22, the conditional draft pick will be removed from the deal.

Brown, who grew up in St. Louis and is the son of former Blues defenceman Jeff Brown, recently signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Senators carrying a value of $750,000 in the NHL and $100,000 in the AHL.

The 23-year-old registered nine points in 13 games with the AHL's Belleville Senators last season. In 2019-20, the six-foot-six centre tallied 28 points in 25 games with Ottawa's affiliate.

An 11th overall draft pick by the Senators in 2016, Brown has only played 30 career NHL games, in which he's recorded nine points.

Sanford, 26, recorded 16 points in 52 games with the Blues last season. He played eight games in St. Louis' run to the Stanley Cup in 2019.

The 2013 second-round draft pick signed a one-year, $2 million contract for the 2021-22 season with the Blues in August.
