The St. Louis Blues today traded right wing Todd Ewen, one of the NHL's most notorious fighters, to Montreal in exchange for the return of a draft pick previously dealt to the Canadiens in January for defenseman Mike Lalor. In return for Ewen, who had 493 penalty minutes in 124 games, St. Louis will get its own third-round pick in the 1991 Entry Draft. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Ewen had 10 goals and seven assists in 3 1/2 seasons with the Blues.

Right wing Todd Ewen will have surgery on his improperly healed left middle finger Monday and is expected to miss three to four weeks, the Mighty Ducks said Friday. "Surgery No. 9 of my career," said Ewen, though only one previous surgery has been on his hands, which are scarred and misshapen from 10 seasons of fighting. Ewen's hand was injured by a skate blade during a fight with Buffalo's Rob Ray on Oct. 13. He missed two games but played the next 10 before deciding he could no longer play.

Todd Ewen is the Mighty Ducks' No. 1 enforcer. Soon, the Ducks could have another who looks a lot like him. Ewen's younger brother, Dean, has agreed to contract terms with the team and is expected to be assigned to San Diego. Dean Ewen, 24, had been in the minors with the New York Islanders before undergoing reconstructive knee surgery last year. He practiced Saturday with the Ducks and said he has passed a physical.

Mighty Duck right wing Todd Ewen accepted the Ducks' offer of a one-year contract worth $478,500 on Thursday. Ewen, who became the Ducks' sole enforcer after Stu Grimson was traded to Detroit last season, had been a restricted free agent, but the Ducks had the right to match any offer. The sides went to arbitration this summer after being unable to reach a new contract agreement following the 1993-94 season.

Garry Valk had a pretty good idea what to expect from San Jose enforcer Todd Ewen, a teammate for three seasons in Anaheim before signing with the Sharks during the off-season. "You always want to make your old team think they made a mistake in not keeping you," Valk said. "Goal scorers try to get three goals. Enforcers try to run people. I'm sure Todd won't change his game against us." As if on cue, Ewen fought Duck tough guy Ken Baumgartner on his first shift and scored a clear victory 3:04 into the game.

The Mighty Ducks' Todd Ewen has drawn an automatic three-game suspension for his part in a brawl against San Jose on Sunday, the NHL confirmed Monday. The suspension was assessed because Ewen received his fifth game-misconduct penalty of the season. He has been suspended twice before by the league this season, for a total of three games.
