The deal is pending the results of a physical and comes on the heels of Monday's announcement that blueliner Jordan Leopold will undergo surgery to repair ligament damage in his right hand. Leopold is expected to be sidelined a minimum of eight weeks.
Colaiacovo, 30, played parts of four seasons with the Blues from 2008-09 to 2011-12.
The 2001 first-round pick has registered 30 goals and 110 assists in 376 career games with Toronto, St. Louis and Detroit.
