St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the Blues have acquired forward Dakota Joshua from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for future considerations.
Joshua has also agreed to a two-year entry-level deal with the Blues.
“Dakota has had an outstanding college career and we are excited to be adding him to our team,” Armstrong said.
The 23-year-old recently completed four years at Ohio State, where he accrued 41 goals and 100 points in 128 games. Joshua was named to the 2018 NCAA Midwest Regional All-Tournament Team, Honorable Mention All-B1G in 2017 and was a two-time Ohio State Scholar-Athlete and Academic All-Big Ten.
A native of Dearborn, Mich., Joshua was selected in the fifth round (128th overall) by Toronto at the 2014 NHL Draft.
