  • Blues lose Nickulas to Chicago


    The Chicago Blackhawks announced that they have claimed right winger Eric Nickulas off waivers from the St. Louis Blues.

    Nickulas, 28, stands at 5.11 and weighs in at 200 pounds. He played in 44 games for the Blues this season and scored 7 goals while adding 11 assists for 18 points with 44 penalty minutes. Of his 7 goals, one was a power play goal and one was a game winner.

    Nickulas is a native of Hyannis, Massachusetts. He was originally the third choice of the Boston Bruins in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft out of the University of New Hampshire. He broke into the NHL with the Bruins in 1998-99 playing in two games.

    Nickulas was signed as a free agent by Worcester of the American Hockey League on November 10, 2001. He was subsequently signed as a free agent by the St. Louis Blues on July 16, 2002.

    Nickulas played parts of three seasons in Boston and the past two years with the Blues. In his NHL career, Nickulas has appeared in 81 games scoring 12 goals and adding 18 assists for 30 points with 66 penalty minutes.

    Nickulas is expected to join the Blackhawks in Columbus tomorrow night.

    Why not? They have lost nearly everything in the year 2004.

    Just one less man that cant be on the ice if they already have 5 plus a goaltender.

            We probably could have packaged Nicklaus and a borderline prospect for Steve Thomas or Zhamnov. What did Nashville give up? Way to blow another one Pleau.

              Would the Blues have noticed if nobody had told them? It's not as if Nicklaus was a mainstay of the Blues scoring.

                  Did you mean Steve Sullivan? Nicklaus wasn't worth dick in a trade.

                      wow, I'm out of the loop. So Steve Sullivan is with Nashville and Zhamnov is with Philly?

                          Nashville also gave up draft picks, including a 2nd. Something Pleau has stated he does not want to do.

                          He's going to need the picks to replace all the players the Blues dump shortly.
