During the offseason, the St. Louis Blues’ AHL affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen, picked up a solid defensive veteran to help lead the young club. The former captain of the Milwaukee Admirals and the current captain of the Peoria Rivermen, Scott Ford was supposed to give the Rivs a big body on defense to help improve their game. Instead, the organization has chosen to part ways before the end of the year.

St. Louis Blues Assistant General Manager and Peoria Rivermen General Manager Kevin McDonald announced on Tuesday that the Rivermen had traded Scott Ford and future considerations to Milwaukee for forwards Jani Lajunen, and Andre Bouvet-Morrissett along with goaltender Zoltan Hetenyi.
