Blues forward T.J. Oshie was selected by The Hockey News as one of five "Players to Watch" during the upcoming 2010-11 season.

Rory Boylen of The Hockey News said: "Oshie had a four-goal, nine-point increase (over his rookie 2008-09 season) – although he did play more games in 2009-10 – but because so much was expected from the 24th overall pick in 2005 after such a strong rookie campaign it wasn’t considered up to snuff. You can bet the Blues won’t be taking any more steps back. And you can bet Oshie will be taking many more steps forward."

Other "Players to Watch" included Valtteri Filppula (Detroit Red Wings), Kyle Okposo (New York Islanders), Erik Karlsson (Ottawa Senators) and Jordan Staal (Pittsburgh Penguins).

Last season, Oshie played 76 games and recorded 18 goals and 30 assists (48 points).

He was originally drafted by the Blues in the first round (24th overall) in 2005.
