T.J. Oshie played well on Washington's top line in 2015-16.
He netted a personal best 26 goals and produced 51 points in 80 games in his first season with the Capitals. Oshie spent most of his playing time alongside Alex Ovechkin and that is expected to continue next year after they benefited from playing with each other. "I think he really enjoyed playing with Oshie," GM Brian MacLellan said of Ovechkin. "I mean, that takes a lot of the pressure off him, offensively, and I think he can play longer given a good team, a deep team." May 27 - 10:39 AM

T.J. Oshie isn't bitter about the fact that his playoff run is over while his old team, the St. Louis Blues, are still in the hunt.

St. Louis dealt T.J. Oshie to Washington over the summer in exchange for Troy Brouwer, Pheonix Copley, and a 2016 third round selection. "If I’m not going to be able to hold up the Cup, why not 15, 16 of my good buddies?" Oshie said. St. Louis will play either Nashville or San Jose in the Western Conference Final.

T.J. Oshie recorded two points in the Capitals’ 3-1 win in Game 5 against the Penguins on Saturday night.

Oshie picked up a helper on Alex Ovechkin’s first-period, power play goal, then scored his own in the second period, effectively the game-winner. Oshie has had an excellent postseason, now with five goals and nine points in 11 games. Ovechkin also had an assist, while Justin Williams scored as well.

T.J. Oshie ended an odd slump with his hat trick on Thursday.

Prior to this contest, Oshie had an 0-5 record in playoff games where he scored, but at last that unusual losing streak is over. Although of course it took Oshie getting a hat trick, including the overtime winner, to finally win a playoff game where he also found the back of the net.

T.J. Oshie came through in a gigantic way for the Washington Capitals on Thursday night, scoring the overtime winner in Game 1 against Pittsburgh, his third goal of the game.

In 36 career playoff games, Oshie's team had never won when he's scored in the post-season. Oshie halted the streak in tremendous fashion in his seventh post-season game for the Capitals, lighting the lamp at three crucial moments during a tense Game 1. The Penguins and Capitals tangle again for Game 2 on Saturday night.

T.J. Oshie picked up a fighting major when he took on Brayden Schenn 10 seconds into the opening period.

The Capitals were upset after Game 4 when they thought that Schenn cross-checked Evgeny Kuznetsov. Oshie, who is not known as a fighter, was on to start the game and took on Schenn as both received five minute majors. "We were really unhappy with a play that [Schenn] made on Kuzy last game, so," Oshie said. "Had to be done." It's turning into a great series with Game 6 Sunday. Don'tcha dare miss it.

T.J. Oshie scored the Washington Capitals' lone goal in a 2-1 loss to the Flyers in Philadelphia Wednesday night.

It was just Oshie's first goal in a first-round playoff series that the Caps dominated until Wednesday. They now lead the best-of-seven set 3-1 with Game 5 scheduled for Friday night. Oshie scored Wednesday early in the third period to cut the Flyers' lead to 2-1.
Apr 20 - 11:33 PM

T.J. Oshie is taking part in the pregame warmup on Thursday.

That means he should be in the lineup. Oshie left Wednesday's practice, but his status was never really in doubt for Game 1. The 29-year-old had 26 goals and 51 points in 80 games this season.
Apr 14 - 6:34 PM

T.J. Oshie exited Washington's practice early on Wednesday, but should be fine.

Oshie went to the ice in pain during the skate before getting up and skating off. He didn't return and was seen walking with a slight limp, but Capitals coach Barry Trotz said that the issue wasn't serious. "He’s fine," Trotz said. "He just got tangled up with one of the guys there." At this time, it seems like Oshie will still play in Game 1.
Apr 13 - 3:20 PM

With his three points during Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Islanders, TJ Oshie reached the 50-point plateau the third straight season and fourth time in his career.

Oshie is now up to 26 goals this season as well, which is well above his previous high of 21. He's been everything and more for the Capitals this season, and has points in three of his last five games as well.
Apr 6 - 12:23 AM

T.J. Oshie played alongside Alex Ovechkin and Marcus Johansson Friday.

Oshie replaced the injured Nicklas Backstrom on the line. Oshie scored his third in four games and now has 25 goals and 47 points this season. He should be in your fantasy lineup if he remains on the top line. If Backstrom is back on Saturday, then Oshie goes back to the third line with Jason Chimera and Jay Beagle and that is not a good spot for him fantasy-wise.
Apr 2 - 11:33 AM

TJ Oshie collected his third goal of his last four games during Friday's 4-2 win over Colorado.

The talented winger/center swingman now has 25 goals on the season, well and above his previous career high. He's also just three points shy of his third straight campaign with at least 50 points. Hopefully he can get there.
Apr 2 - 1:50 AM

Forward T.J. Oshie played Wednesday night, after all.

Oshie was listed as questionable with an undisclosed injury before he and the Washington Capitals dropped a 2-1 shootout decision to the Flyers in Philadelphia. He ended up with 16:35 of ice time and had two shots on goal. He also dished out three hits.
Mar 30 - 11:53 PM

T.J. Oshie is dealing with an undisclosed injury.

Oshie is considered a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest as a result. Washington doesn't have anything left to play for until the playoffs begin, so it wouldn't be surprising if Oshie ends up taking the game off if there's even a minor issue.
Mar 30 - 5:18 PM

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

He missed Saturday's match due to an illness, but was back on the ice for the morning skate Monday. Oshie skated on the second line during the session and he was back on the top power-play unit.
