The Buffalo Sabres have traded star goalie Ryan Miller and team captain Steve Ott to the St Louis Blues for two draft picks and three players.

Goalie Jaroslav Halek, Forward Chris Stewart and prospect William Carrier will all now move to Buffalo who also got a 2015 first round pick and a 2016 third round pick.

The Blues lead the Central division and have now sured up their goaltender position as they will be hoping to avoid yet another disappointing play-off run.

Miller- who is the Sabres franchise leader with 284 victories and 580 games has a 2.72 goals-against average and .923 save percentage this season.

Miller won the Vezina trophy for best goalie in 2010 and was crowned MVP in the Olympic tournament in Vancouver in the same year.

Ott was aquired by the Sabres in 2012 from Dallas and has scored 18 goals and 26 assists in 107 games for Buffalo.

The pair leaving will be a big loss to the Sabres but going the other way they have some real quality coming in.

Halek has a 24-9-4 record with a 2.23 goals against average, a .917 save percentage and four shutouts this season.

Stewart has 15 goals and 11 assists in 58 games this season and the 19-year-old Carrier was the Blues second round pick in 2013.
