The St. Louis Blues acquired forward Dakota Joshua in a trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday in exchange for future considerations.

Joshua completed his fourth season at Ohio State University earlier this year.

“Dakota has had an outstanding college career and we are excited to be adding him to our team,” general manager Doug Armstrong said in a press release.

The 23-year-old Dearborn, Mich., native was selected in the fifth round (128th overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft.

After the trade was completed, Joshua signed a two-year, entry-level deal with the Blues.
