Hurricanes Trade Justin Faulk To Blues; Faulk Signs Extention In St. Louis

The Carolina Hurricanes have traded 27-year-old defenseman Justin Faulk and a fifth-round 2020 Draft pick to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for Joel Edmundson, Dominik Bokk and a seventh-round draft pick. This trade comes as little surprise considering the team has been stacked with defensemen and rumors of Faulk’s trade have been floating since the team signed Jake Gardiner.

Faulk is on the last year of his $4,833,333 AAV contract so he automatically resigned for seven seasons with the St. Louis Blues. Yeesh. That contracts kicks in at the start of 2020-2021 and has a $6.5 million AAV. All of the details about the contracts have not been released yet.

The Blues lost some players after their Cup-winning season so picking up a guy like Justin Faulk isn’t a bad idea.
