T.J. Oshie News
Center, Right Wing
Oshie signed an eight-year, $46M ($5.75M AAV) contract extension on Friday.
In 2016-17, Oshie set a new career-high with 33 goals despite missing 14 games with a pair of upper-body injuries. Oshie tied for the team-lead in goals and ranked fifth in points (56), making it the fifth straight (full 82 game) season that he has topped 50 points. The American-born winger will turn 31-years-old in December, so the Capitals have him locked up at $5.75M per season until he is 39, which is quite an investment.
Oshie (upper-body) will return to the Capitals' lineup on Saturday.
Oshie has missed the last four games with an upper-body injury, but will return to the lineup against the Flyers on Saturday. Oshie was hurt against the Flyers on February 22nd, but will be back with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on the top line tonight. Oshie had a great month of February before getting hurt, recording six goals and five assists (11 points) in nine games.
Oshie (upper-body) will not play on Tuesday.

Oshie (upper-body) will not play Saturday in Nashville.
Oshie missed last night’s game vs. the Oilers and did not travel to Nashville for Saturday’s game because of an upper-body injury. With Oshie out, Brett Connolly is expected to skate on the top line and Riley Barber is expected to remain in the lineup. Oshie is day-to-day.
Oshie (personal) will not be in the lineup on Thursday.

Oshie left Saturday’s game with an upper-body injury; will be re-evaluated on Sunday.

Oshie is week-to-week with an upper-body injury that he suffered on Friday.
Oshie played just 2:34 before leaving Friday’s win in Detroit. Oshie was hurt in an attempt to hit Red Wings’ forward Riley Sheahan and it sounds like the upper-body injury will keep Oshie sidelined for at least a couple of weeks.
Oshie (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Wednesday.
Oshie was considered to be taking maintenance day this morning, but is listed as a game-time decision for tonight’s game in Philadelphia. Oshie returned to the lineup on Monday after missing the two previous games with an illness. There is no word whether or not this is related to that illness.
