ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced Thursday the club has re-signed forward T.J. Oshie
to a one-year contract.
“We’re excited to have T.J. in the fold for another season,” said Armstrong. “His energy and versatility make him an integral part of our club.”
Oshie, 24, dressed in 49 games for the Blues this past season recording 34 points including 12 goals, 22 assists and a +10 rating.
"It feels great. I couldn't be happier and I'm glad to be back in St. Louis. I always knew that would be the end result," Oshie said. "I'm very excited. Now I can just focus on working out."
The 5’11”, 195-pound forward posted a career-high seven-game point streak from Oct. 11 to Oct. 28 (goal, eight assists) and also lead the club in shootout shooting percentage converting on four of his five attempts (80%) for the year.
Oshie has played in 182 career National Hockey League (NHL) games over three seasons with the Blues, amassing 121 points including 44 goals and 77 assists.
The Everett, Washington native was originally drafted by the Blues in the first round, 24th overall, of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.
"I couldn't imagine playing anywhere else," Oshie said. "I'm very happy with it and it's finally done."
