As per TSN, the St Louis Blues have traded David Perron to the Edmonton Oilers in return for Magnus Paajarvi and a 2nd round pick in the 2014 draft.

Perron, 25, is a two-time 20 goal scorer and a genuine top 6 forward, whilst Paajarvi is a former 10th overall pick with speed to burn and top defensive ability, though his offensive skills are still developing.  It’s a tricky trade to analyse – I’ll leave that up to Sam later! – with the Oilers clearly picking up the better, more established player right now, but he has a fairly extensive injury history, whilst Paajarvi has a lot of potential as an all-round player, not to mention that 2nd round pick which is pretty valuable.

As mentioned, more analysis to come from Sam later on.
