The Blues, hit hard by a bacterial illness, have recalled winger Dmitrij Jaskin from AHL Chicago. Winger Paul Bissonnette, whose last involvement with the NHL was a training camp attendance with St. Louis, has signed a one-year deal in the UK with the Elite Ice Hockey League's Cardiff Devils, where he notched 21 points in 11 games during the 2012/13 lockout. He has an NHL out-clause.
The Lightning made no major moves this week.
