ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The St. Louis Blues announced Monday that the Vancouver Canucks have agreed to buy the Blues’ American Hockey League (AHL) franchise, the Peoria Rivermen.

The transaction is subject to approval by the AHL. Pending that approval, neither team is providing any other details. It is likely all changes would take place after the 2013 season ends.

Tom Stillman and his St. Louis based ownership group took control of the Blues, the team’s lease on Scottrade Center, the Peabody Opera House, and Peoria Rivermen in May 2012.
