The St. Louis Blues have waived Magnus Paajarvi.

This move is probably related to Jori Lehtera (concussion) being activated off the injured reserve list. Paajarvi was taken with the 10th overall pick in 2009, but the 25-year-old never developed into a top NHL player. He has 36 goals and 81 points in 279 career games.
