T.J. Oshie (upper body) was back at practice Monday.

The forward did not take part in any contact drills and was not put on a regular line but outside of that, he was a full participant. The forward is considered week-to-week after he was injured on November 18 but he could return fairly quickly barring a setback. Oshie has eight goals and 12 points in 17 games thus far and should be back in your lineup when he returns to action.

Oshie took a thunderous hit from Riley Sheahan on Friday night, which caused the injury. It sounds like Oshie may have a concussion, but that's only an inference.
