Blues sign Oshie to 5-year contract

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

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
