The forward only played two games for the team.

Martin Havlat was given a ten-day PTO tryout, then played two games for the Blues, scoring one goal in their 2-0 win over the New Jersey Devils.

That is how the history of Havlat's time with the team will read, because the Blues have placed him on unconditional waivers today for personal reasons. From the Blues' press release:

St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has placed forward Martin Havlat on unconditional waivers.

Havlat is seeking his unconditional release from the team due to personal reasons.

Havlat has asked for privacy at this time and neither he or the Blues will have any further comment on the matter.

Havlat, 34, was originally brought in by the Blues on a professional tryout and signed a one-year contract on Nov. 6. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound forward appeared in two games with the club, recording one goal.

I hope no one bought a jersey.
