Article from DMN:Stars deal Bacashihua to Blues for defenseman

By RICHARD DURRETT / The Dallas Morning News

The Stars traded one former first-round pick for another Friday, sending goalie Jason Bacashihua to St. Louis for the rights to defenseman Shawn Belle.

Dallas has a wealth of goaltending prospects, allowing general manager Doug Armstrong the latitude to deal Bacashihua, 21, who was the Stars' 26th overall pick in 2001.

The move means Dan Ellis or Mike Smith would likely backup starter Marty Turco next season.

Belle, 19, gives the Stars some much-needed depth on defense. He was St. Louis' first-round selection (No. 30 overall) in 2003 and played in 55 games for the Tri-City Americans of the Western Hockey League last season. He had nine goals, 20 assists, 68 penalty minutes and was plus-5. Belle (6-2, 225) has also competed for Team Canada at different levels the past three seasons.

"Shawn Belle is a good two-way defenseman who is an excellent skater with very good size," said Armstrong in a statement. "He has been able to represent his country on several different occasions and has shined every time."

Bacashihua was 13-19-5 with a 2.66 goals against average and a .916 save percentage last season.
