40 Years Ago Today...

Nov. 29, 1967: Adding two quality performers to their expansion roster in exchange for two veterans who don't figure in their plans, the St. Louis Blues acquire center Red Berenson and defenseman Barclay Plager from the New York Rangers for Ron Stewart and Ron Attwell.

Stewart's best days are long gone and Attwell will play exactly four games for the Rangers, but Berenson and Plager will become two of the mainstays of the St. Louis club.

Berenson, nicknamed the "Red Baron," will score 172 goals in eight seasons with the Blues, separated by a stint with Detroit.

Plager steps right into the defensive leadership as the Blues advance to three straight Stanley Cup finals (1968-1970).
