I believe I now have as good a chance as any to win a Stanley Cup and there was no way I was going to pass this up."
Sportsnet.ca -- The St. Louis Blues continue to clean house.
Sportsnet has learned the Blues have dealt highly-coveted centre Doug Weight to the Carolina Hurricanes.
Weight told Sportsnet he learned of the proposal Sunday night and agreed to waive his no-trade clause on Monday morning.
"I'm very excited to be going to such a great team," Weight said. "I believe I now have as good a chance as any to win a Stanley Cup and there was no way I was going to pass this up."
A source close to the Hurricanes would not confirm who Carolina had to give up in the trade, other than to say a "depth-type roster player, but the Hurricanes did not jeopardize the future to make this deal".
Weight, who served as an assistant captain with the team, was also the Blues' leading scorer with 11 goals and 33 assists.
The move comes a day after St. Louis sent the Blues' second-leading scorer Mike Sillinger to Nashville for Timofei Shishkanov.
