Former Warroad star avoids arbitration by signing for $21 million

Former Warroad star T.J. Oshie signed a five-year contract extension on Thursday with the St. Louis Blues for $20.875 million, an average of $4.175 per season according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch:

The deal allowed the winger and the club to avoid an arbitration hearing that was set to take place at 9 a.m. Friday.

"I couldn't be any happier to re-sign with the Blues," Oshie said. "It's where I've grown as a player and as a pro. As far as the long-term security goes, it's something that I've never had in my career ... so it's nice to have that security, but I still want to keep getting better every day and definitely every year."

Oshie won two state Class 1A championships while at Warroad.
