T.J. Oshie has a lower-body injury.

Oshie is regarded as a game-time decision as a result. The timing is unfortunate as he's been hot lately, scoring five goals and eight points in four games last week.

T.J. Oshie is the NHL's second star of the week.

Oshie scored five goals and eight points in four contests last week. Up until that point he was having a lukewarm season, but Oshie now has 13 goals and 22 points in 32 contests in 2015-16.

Forward T.J. Oshie scored two goals and added an assist to help the Washington Capitals defeat the Penguins 4-1 in Pittsburgh Monday night.

Nicklas Backstrom also had three points for the winners -- a goal and two assists. Backstrom now has 10 goals and 17 assists on the season. Oshie, who produced both of his goals in the third period Monday, also has 10 goals this season, with seven assists. The other Washington scorer Monday was John Carlson (five). Carlson also picked up an assist (18).

T.J. Oshie netted a pair of goals to help the Capitals down the first place Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.

The 28-year-old now has eight tallies this season and 14 points through 24 games. Oshie needs 11 more goals to match his career high.

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.

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."

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.

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.
