T.J. Oshie scored for the first time in seven games Friday.
Oshie had a goal on the power play as the Capitals defeated Tampa Bay 4-2. The forward was acquired from St. Louis in the off-season for Troy Brouwer, Pheonix Copley and a third round pick in 2016 and now has six goals and 12 points in 22 games. "I think there was a little bit of frustration in his game," Capitals Coach Barry Trotz said. "He had some great looks. I think Osh is a veteran guy now, and he recognizes if you’re getting looks, you’re going to eventually score some goals. It’s those droughts where you don’t get any chances or it seems like you’re never by the net or never an opportunity, but he’s been getting opportunities. He sniped that one." He should be scoring more so if you are able to get him cheaply from a disgruntled owner, go for it. Nov 28 - 10:22 AM

T.J. Oshie registered an assist in a 3-2 loss Thursday night.

Oshie has five goals and 10 points in 18 contests this season. Those numbers are a bit disappointing given that he has often played alongside Alex Ovechkin this season. Unfortunately it seems the move to Washington hasn't boosted Oshie's offensive output despite the opportunity it has provided him.

T.J. Oshie scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 2-1 win over Columbus.

Oshie completed a pretty passing play between Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and himself to extend Washington's lead to 2-0. Oshie is off to a hot start this season. He has four goals and eight points in nine games with his new team. Justin Williams also scored for the Caps on Friday.

T.J. Oshie scored his second power play goal of the season Saturday.

Oshie and the Capitals have played only four games this season so this is quite a feat. Oshie was dealt from the Blues in the off-season and had only three power play goals with 10 assists in 2014-15 so he could surpass his goal total by the end of October with the vaunted Capitals power play. He should be in your fantasy lineup.

T.J. Oshie potted a goal and an assist Thursday night as the Caps rebounded with a 4-1 victory over Chicago.

Oshie's first goal of the season came midway through the first period on a power play, then he helped seal the win by setting up Alex Ovechkin for the final goal of the game. Oshie looks to be a reliable fantasy producer in Washington's top six.

T.J. Oshie potted a goal and added the shootout winner in Washington's 4-3 win over Montreal in Thursday night's preseason action.

Also claiming two points was Justin Williams, a fellow right winger who could help or hinder Oshie's fantasy value depending on who coach Barry Trotz prefers to play with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom. Ovechkin also added a goal in the game, while Braden Holtby made 10 saves on 13 shots in two periods of work.

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.
