The Montreal Canadiens traded defenseman Marco Scandella to the St. Louis Blues for a 2020 second-round pick and a 2021 conditional fourth-round pick, the team announced Tuesday.

Montreal will get the fourth-rounder if Scandella re-signs in St. Louis or if the Blues win two playoff rounds and Scandella plays in at least half of the games in the first two rounds, according to Sportsnet's Chris Johnston.

Scandella will likely step in and replace Jay Bouwmeester, who is out indefinitely after undergoing a heart procedure.

This marks the second time this season Scandella has been traded, as he was flipped from the Buffalo Sabres to Montreal in January for a fourth-round pick.
