ST. LOUIS – T.J. Oshie is coming back to the St. Louis Blues for another season.

The 24-year-old centre signed a US$2.35-million extension on Friday.

Oshie appeared in 49 games for St. Louis last season, putting up 12 goals and 22 assists for 34 points.

He considered arbitration and receiving an offer sheet.
