The Washington Capitals have signed T.J. Oshie to an eight-year, $46 million contract extension.
That works out to a $5.75 million annual cap hit, which is on the low end of what we thought he would get, but presumably the Capitals got him to agree to a lower AAV in exchange for a longer contract. In that regard this deal might hurt Washington in the long-term as Oshie will turn 31 in December. For now though his continued presence will be big for the Capitals as he's been a key member of the squad. He's breached the 50-point mark in each of his last four seasons and had 33 goals and 56 points in 68 contests in 2016-17. Jun 23 - 5:32 PM

The Washington Capitals might not be able to sign T.J. Oshie with the cap set at $75 million for the 2017-18 campaign.

Capitals GM Brian MacLellan previously suggested that the team would have a decent shot of signing Oshie if the cap went up to $77 million. Per capfriendly, Washington's current cap hit for next season is only at about $50 million, but that's before factoring in the major RFAs they still need to come to terms with. Washington needs to re-sign Andre Burakovsky, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Dmitry Orlov, and Philipp Grubauer, among others. Plus even after re-signing those RFAs, the Capitals would still have several important vacancies in terms of both forwards and defensemen, so filling out their roster might be complicated and it would get harder if T.J. Oshie comes with a cap hit of say $6 million or so. Perhaps Oshie would be willing to give the Capitals a discount though if he's focused on staying in Washington.

T.J. Oshie and the Capitals have only held general contract talks, according to GM Brian MacLellan.

He said the two sides have not discussed numbers yet and their ability to re-sign him may depend on what the salary cap looks like for next year. If the cap increases to $77 million then there could a decent chance that Oshie stays. The Capitals want to take care of their restricted free agents first, but it seems like Oshie is a player who still could be back with the team.
May 30 - 5:40 PM

John Shannon of Sportsnet.ca says that the Washington Capitals and T.J. Oshie have just about completed a new contract.

Oshie was slated to be a UFA on July 1 but this will take him off the market. There are no terms at this time but that should come shortly as Oshie would have been a highly sought-after free agent had he hit the market. Oshie had 33 goals this season, his best in his NHL career. Look for 30-plus goals and 55-60 points from Oshie this season and draft him accordingly.

It sounds like T.J. Oshie is interested in re-signing with the Washington Capitals.

Oshie is coming off a five-year, $20,875,000 contract. "Right now I'm a Capital and I feel like that's where I'll be and if something changes it changes," Oshie said. He's coming off a strong season where he scored 33 goals and 56 points in 68 contests and another 12 points in 13 playoff games. That being said, the Capitals are likely to make significant changes this summer after another disappointing postseason run so it's not clear what their plans are for Oshie or if they will be able to afford his services.
May 12 - 12:10 PM

T.J. Oshie contributed a goal and an assist in Monday's 5-2 victory versus Pittsburgh.

T.J. Oshie recorded an assist in the Capitals' 3-2 loss to Pittsburgh in Game 1 on Thursday.

Apr 28 - 11:20 AM

T.J. Oshie scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Oshie finished the game with a plus-1 rating and three shots on goal in 19:22 of ice time. The Caps forward has now picked up at least one point in each of his four playoff games. Oshie has six points this postseason. Tom Wilson (twice) and Alex Ovechkin also scored for Washington. The series is now tied at two. Game 5 will be played in Washington on Friday night.

Apr 9 - 5:26 PM

T.J. Oshie passed teammate Alex Ovechkin for the team goal lead when he scored three times against Tampa Bay in a 5-3 win Saturday night.

Oshie scored back-to-back quickly in the first period to pass Ovechkin for goals scored this season. He then added an assist in the third period on John Carlson’s goal. The center ended the night by getting the hat trick in the third after Tampa Bay went empty net. Oshie finished the game with 29 goals for the season and 49 points. At the start of the game, Oshie’s 26 goals tied him with his best complete season in regard to goals scored. That came in 2015-16. He still has plenty of time remaining this season to pad his advantage.
Mar 18 - 11:04 PM

In mid-March, T.J. Oshie already has as many goals (26) as he scored in 2015-16 after generating one in the Washington Capitals' 4-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Oshie has those 26 goals despite being limited to 54 games, grabbing those tallies on just 113 SOG (for a resounding 23 shooting percentage). At 45 points, he's six away from matching last season's total. His +23 plus/minus would set a career-best.
Mar 12 - 3:18 AM

T.J. Oshie (upper body) will return to action on Saturday.

"Everything feels good right now," Oshie said. "As long as somehow something bad doesn't happen on the way home, I think I should be good to go." He is expected to get back on the top line with Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin. Oshie will get power-play time as well, so get him back in your lineup.
Mar 4 - 2:05 PM

T.J. Oshie (upper body) is likely to get back in the lineup on Saturday.

He skated on the top line, with Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin during Friday's practice. Coach Barry Trotz said Oshie was "really close" and his status will probably be determined after the morning skate.
