Oshie is out indefinitely with an upper-body injury suffered in Game 4.

Unfortunately for the Capitals, it sounds like Oshie is going to be sidelined for a long period of time and will likely miss the rest of the playoffs, regardless of how deep they go. Oshie was hurt following a hard hit from Hurricanes’ winger Warren Foegele in Game 4. Devante Smith-Pelly has been recalled from Hershey (AHL) and will replace Oshie in the lineup for Game 5.

Oshie will be “re-evaluated” after suffering an upper-body injury on Sunday; questionable for Monday’s game in Los Angeles.

Oshie was forced to leave Sunday’s game with an upper-body injury after playing just 7:10 TOI and his status for Monday’s game remains in question. Head coach Todd Rierden said that he doesn’t think Oshie will be out long-term but that he will be re-evaluated on Monday. It seems highly unlikely that Oshie will suit up but monitor his status as puck-drop draws near.

Oshie (concussion) will be back in the Capitals lineup on Tuesday.

Oshie has missed the last 11 games with a concussion but will play Tuesday vs. the Red Wings. Oshie has a chance to get on the scoresheet right away as he will skate on the right wing with Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin. So far this season, Oshie has scored nine goals with five assists (14 points) in 18 games.

Oshie is being evaluated for a possible concussion.

Oshie was forced to leave Monday’s game in Winnipeg after a heavy collision in the corner with Jets’ defenseman Josh Morrissey. Oshie’s head was driven to the ice after the hit and he came up a bit woozy. Oshie has four reported concussions in his career, so the Capitals will be very cautious with the winger. Oshie is questionable at the very least for Friday’s game in Colorado.

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.
