St. Louis Blues chairman Tom Stillman admitted that it was hard to see the club part ways with both T.J. Oshie and Barret Jackman this off-season.
"Honestly, (the Oshie trade) and Barret Jackman’s departure are, on a personal level, difficult for me," Stillman said. "It is really a hard part of the business. I’m comfortable we’re doing the right thing for the team and all, but those two individuals in particular are really wonderful people. I am sad to see them go. It’s weird to see how the guys can just be uprooted, especially in a trade." Aug 2 - 7:51 AM

T.J. Oshie couldn’t contain his excitement about joining the Capitals in his session with the media Saturday.

The winger was acquired from the Blues on July 2 in a trade that saw Troy Brouwer leave DC. "This team's ready to win, it looks like," Oshie said. "I'm happy to be an addition to that and be a piece of the puzzle." Oshie said he was "fired up" after talking to the coaching staff Friday, and he can't wait to get started. Oshie had 19 goals and 55 points in 72 games last season, and he’ll likely slide in to the Capitals first or second line.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Bernie Miklasz believes that the St. Louis Blues are actually better off without T.J. Oshie.

Miklasz believes that Oshie is "overrated" and Troy Brouwer will score the tough goals that his trade counterpart failed to do. The columnist doesn't appreciate Oshie's "celebrity" status in St. Louis, which he views as unearned.
Jul 4 - 6:26 PM

Now a Capital after a seven-year stint with the St. Louis Blues, T.J Oshie has a bright opportunity in Washington this fall.

Not including the lockout shortened 2013 season, Oshie has averaged 77 games played with 20 goals and 56 points since 2011. Last season's 55-point output came on a line with David Backes and Alexander Steen, plus some playing time with Jaden Schwartz, Paul Stastny and Patrik Berglund. In Washington, Oshie will play with Niklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin if he stays above Justin Williams on the Caps depth chart. That would bode well for a significant increase in production, and possibly still a minor increase if he is matched with Evgeny Kuznetsov and Marcus Johansson on the second line.
Jul 2 - 8:19 PM

The Washington Capitals have acquired T.J. Oshie from the St. Louis Blues in exchange for Troy Brouwer, Pheonix Copley and a 2016 third round pick.

Between the acquisition of Oshie and recent signing of Justin Williams, the Washington Capitals are looking pretty strong on the right side. Oshie had 19 goals and 55 points in 72 contests in 2014-15, which is the third time in four years he's surpassed the 50-point mark. The lone exception was the lockout shortened campaign when he had 20 points in 30 contests. Oshie playing on the top line would naturally be the ideal for fantasy owners, but he would also be a strong presence on the second line if the Capitals decide to go that route.
Jul 2 - 4:54 PM

T.J. Oshie scored in Sunday’s 4-1 loss in game six of their first round matchup against the Minnesota Wild.

The Blues are now officially eliminated from the playoffs. Jake Allen was mostly good in this series, but the two goals he allowed today were extremely weak. As for Oshie, he wasn’t very productive in this series. The 28-year-old registered just one goal and one assist in the six-game series. After a strong regular season, the Blues will have to answer some questions about another early playoff exit.
Apr 26 - 6:01 PM

The Blues will dress the same players they did for Game 1 but will shuffle their forward lines.

T.J. Oshie, who skated alongside Paul Stastny and Jaden Schwartz in Game 1, will move to a line with David Backes and Dmitrij Jaskin. Patrik Berglund, will move off of Backes' line to skate with Schwartz and Stastny. "The way we finished is the way we started [Friday]," coach Ken Hitchcock said after practice. "[Oshie] had moved up and played the last few shifts with David. We're familiar with that group. We'll keep trying to help the guys and see if we can get a little bit better chemistry for everybody here." The Jori Lehtera, Vladimir Tarasenko and Alexander Steen line will stay intact. Adjust your roster accordingly.

There's a good chance that St. Louis and Chicago could face each other in the first round of the playoffs.

The final seeding in the Central division hasn't been determined just yet. Nashville currently sits in first place with 104 points, St. Louis is second with 103 points and Chicago is third with 102 points. "The standings kind of just add to the rivalry," said Blues forward T.J. Oshie. "I don't think it's hard for anyone on either team to get up for these games, but there's definitely a little more excitement, a little more edge that you can expect (Sunday) with where both teams are at." The two teams will face-off in Chicago on Sunday night.
Apr 5 - 9:38 AM

T.J. Oshie (illness) will be back in the lineup on Monday.

He sat out Saturday's match because he wasn't feeling well. Oshie has produced 19 goals and 51 points in 66 games this season.
Mar 30 - 12:09 PM

T.J. Oshie missed Saturday morning's practice due to illness but he is expected to play Saturday night against Columbus.

Just in case you were worried when you heard he did not participate in scrimmages. Keep Oshie active.
Mar 28 - 1:37 PM

TJ Oshie scored an empty net goal and added a power play assist during the Blues' 3-0 win over the Stars.

Another quality game by the Blues' fifth-leading scorer. His goal, though on the empty net, was bookended by Oshie who started the play off with a blocked shot. He'd later score only after accidentally losing the puck on a deke, and it going in anyway. Oshie now has 19 goals and 48 points this season, with 13 of his points coming with the man advantage.
Mar 15 - 9:55 PM

T.J Oshie registered three assists in Sunday's 6-5 shootout loss to Vancouver.

Oshie assisted on Alex Pietrangelo's first period goal and he also set up third period goals by Dmitrij Jaskin and David Backes. The Blues were down 5-2 in the final frame but they were able to fight back and force overtime. Oshie rang a shot off the crossbar in the extra frame and he missed on his shootout attempt. The 28-year-old has 17 goals and 44 points in 55 games this season.
Mar 2 - 12:36 AM

T.J. Oshie had a goal and a helper in Thursday's 6-3 victory versus Tampa Bay.

His assist was a pretty no-look, behind-the-back, between-the-legs feed to David Backes, who had a goal and a helper of his own in the match. Oshie has a three-game point streak (one goal, three assists) and 37 points in 47 games this year.
Feb 13 - 11:19 AM

T.J. Oshie has scored in three consecutive contests.

He got his 14th goal of the year in Thursday's 5-4 shootout win over Nashville. Oshie has enjoyed an excellent month, with eight goals and six assists in 10 January games, which has helped him rebound from a tough start to the year.
Jan 30 - 11:13 AM

T.J. Oshie was not on the ice for the Blues' skate Saturday morning but he should be in the lineup against the Maple Leafs Saturday night.

Just a maintenance morning off after blocking a shot that stung in Tuesday's game. Keep Oshie active.
