Blues acquire Cannone from Sens

The Ottawa Senators have sent Pat Cannone, who spent last season with the AHL’s Binghamton Senators, to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for future considerations.

Cannone, 26, signed with the Senators after ending his four year tenure at Miami University (OH.). While with the college hockey powerhouse, Cannone helped the team to a CCHA Championship in 2010-11, just before signing on with the Sens.

In two full season with Bingo, Cannone was a consistent performer, contributing 30 goals and 40 assists in 152 games with the Senators top affiliate.

Standing 6’0″ and nearly 200 lbs., Cannone has the hands and size to be an effective power forward and will look to put the pieces together next season when he suits up with the Blues top affiliate in Chicago. As a member of the Wolves, Cannone will likely slot into a top-six role. His current contract is a two-way deal that pays $625,000 in the NHL, and $105,000 in the ‘A’.
