The Oklahoma City Barons lost another piece of their Western Conference finals team on Wednesday when the Edmonton Oilers traded forward Magnus Paajarvi to the St. Louis Blues.

The Oilers, the parent team of the American Hockey League franchise in Oklahoma City, received forward David Perron. Edmonton also gave St. Louis a 2014 second-round draft pick.

The speedy Paajarvi spent time with both Oklahoma City and Edmonton the last two seasons. With the Barons, he had 11 goals and 45 points in 72 games. Paajarvi, the Oilers' first-round pick in 2009, had 20 points in 38 games this season as Oklahoma City took Grand Rapids to Game 7 of the Western Conference finals.

Perron was a two-time 20-goal scorer for St. Louis. He had 25 points in 48 games this season.

Paajarvi is a restricted free agent, but Blues general manager Doug Armstrong said Paajarvi liked that the Blues had the young winger's rights for the next four years.
