St. Louis Blues Showing Interest In Florida Panthers' Defenseman Jason Garrison

The Blues have made no secret that they’d like to add some defensive depth in the top four, spelling the end of the Carlo Colaiacovo/Mr. Bill of defensemen era. The top four for right now has a bit of a hole on it next to Alex Pietrangelo, assuming that Barret Jackman sticks with being paired with Kevin Shattenkirk. The Blues need a guy with a big shot for the power play, and one that’s responsible. Will they trade for one? Absolutely. Would it be even better to not lose any assets and acquire one during free agency come July 1st? Of course.

Florida Panthers’ defenseman Jason Garrison will be a UFA, and although the Panthers would more than likely like to retain his rights, the blueliner is on the Blues’ radar. He could do well on the power play, which took the better part of half of last season (or longer) to become effective.

Garrison, who has only played for the Panthers, had 16 goals and 17 assists last season and finished the year a respectable +6. In the playoffs he had a goal and two assists, and finished a -2.
