ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Blues have signed forward T.J. Oshie to a five-year contract.

Terms were not disclosed but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the deal is worth nearly $21 million.

At 25, Oshie is among many young up-and-coming players for the Blues. He tied for the team lead with 54 points in 2011-12. He was third in goals with 19 and second in assists with 35. In four seasons, he has 63 goals and 112 assists for 175 points.

Oshie was a first-round pick (24th overall) for the Blues in the 2005 draft.

Quote of the Day

You could see out there that everybody was willing to compete, to sacrifice, even blocking shots to the end. Even in the third when we were up 5-0, guys were still working hard and blocking shots That's a nice feeling also for the future.
