ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. Louis Blues made their third move on the trade deadline, acquiring forward Olli Jokinen from the Toronto Maple Leafs for forward Joakim Lindstrom and a conditional sixth-round draft pick in 2016.

The 36-year-old Jokinen is making his third stop this season after 48 games with Nashville and six with Toronto. The Blues are his 10th team in 17 seasons. He has three goals, four assists and 28 penalty minutes.

Lindstrom had three goals and three assists in 34 games with St. Louis.

Earlier Tuesday, the Blues acquired defensemen Zbynek Michalek from Arizona and Robert Bortuzzo from Pittsburgh. They had 85 points, fourth-best in the NHL.

Jokinen is eighth among active players with 1,223 career regular-season games and his 747 points is 20th-best. He's appeared in six postseason games.

Jokinen was the third overall pick of the 1997 draft by the Kings.
