ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues President John Davidson announced today that the team has signed 2005 first round draft pick, T.J. Oshie and 2007 first round pick Lars Eller.

“I am happy that the Blues have been patient with me over the past couple of years,” said Oshie. “I am now ready and proud to wear the Blue Note next season. I would like to thank my family, who have supported me all these years. I would also like to give a special thanks to all the programs, coaches, and all of my teammates who have made an impact on my life and hockey career.”

“I am really excited about signing with the Blues,” said Eller. “It has always been my dream to play in the NHL and I am one step closer to achieving my ultimate goal.”

“We are happy to have T.J. and Lars in the fold as both players will be important assets for this hockey club as we move forward,” said Davidson.

Oshie, 21, was the Blues first selection, 24th overall, in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. A native of Everett, Washington, Oshie has spent the last three seasons at the University of North Dakota, leading the Fighting Sioux to three consecutive NCAA Frozen Four appearances.

The 6-0, 192-pound center was a first team All-WCHA selection and Top 10 Hobey Baker Award finalist this past season, finishing with a team leading 45 points (18 goals, 27 assists) in 42 games played.

Oshie finished his three-year career at North Dakota, registering 142 points (59 goals, 83 assists) in 129 career games. His 142 career points ranks him 30th all-time in North Dakota history.

Eller, 19, was chosen as the 13th overall pick by the Blues in the 2007 Entry Draft. This past season, the Rodovre, Denmark native helped Frolunda J20 capture the Swedish Junior-20 SuperElit Championship. Eller also played with Frolunda of the Swedish Elite League and with Boras HC of the Swedish First League this past season. The 6-1, 198-pound forward represented Team Denmark at the 2008 World Junior Championships, tallying six points (three goals, three assists). Eller just recently represented Denmark at the 2008 World Championships, recording two assists.
