Joshua Signs with St. Louis Blues


Dakota Joshua, who recently completed his four-year career with the Ohio State men’s hockey team, is now a member of the St. Louis Blues organization.

Joshua, who was drafted by Toronto in the 2014 NHL Draft, was traded by the Maple Leafs to the Blues Friday. Joshua then agreed to a two-year entry level contract with the Blues, the defending Stanley Cup champions.

A native of Dearborn, Michigan, Joshua was a member of the second senior class in Ohio State program history to make three NCAA Tournament appearances, including a 2018 Frozen Four trip (second in program history). He earned NCAA Midwest Regional All-Tournament Team accolades after a dominating performance at the regional when the Buckeyes beat Princeton and defending NCAA champion Denver.

In 2018-19, Joshua had a 9-13-22 line as the Buckeyes captured the first Big Ten regular season title in program history. He ended his career with 100 points, on 41 goals and 59 assists, in 128 games in the Scarlet and Gray. He was Honorable Mention All-B1G in 2017.

A sport industry major, Joshua was an Ohio State Scholar-Athlete and Academic All-Big Ten honoree.
