News: Cracknell was traded to the Blues on Thursday for future considerations.
Impact: The 29-year-old Cracknell spent time in the Blues' organization from 2009 through 2014, so he'll join the team as a known commodity. Expect him to report to AHL Chicago, with little chance of earning a call-up to the Blues unless a rash of injuries occurs.
