MacLellan Gives an Update on Oshie

Capitals’ General Manager, Brian MacLellan, spoke with reporters early this afternoon for the first time this offseason. MacLellan spoke about the direction the team is going in and mentioned a little bit about T.J. Oshie and a potential contract. 

“I like Oshie. Of the unrestricted free agents, he’s a good fit. It’s going to depend on what the salary cap is and what he’s looking for. There’s nothing specific as far as term and money,” said MacLellan.

Rumors regarding a new Oshie contract surfaced last week, making it sound as though a deal was “all but done”. If this is the case, it’s clear that MacLellan is not letting it be known.

Oshie has stated publicly that he likes it in Washington. “This group of guys, organization, coaches. It’s been a great fit for me. It’s been a great fit for my family. So, I’d like to come back here.”

T.J. Oshie scored a career-high 33 goals this past season and was a big asset to the top line along with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom. How much will he cost exactly? Read more here.

Michael is an avid DC sports fan with a passion for writing. He has followed the Washington Capitals since the 2003-04 season, around the time his enthusiasm for DC teams really began. It was from the days when they had the worst record in the league to when they became the most exciting team in the area. His Dad took him to his first Caps game a couple of years later. One of his favorite memories was being in the stands during the 2015 Winter Classic where Troy Brouwer scored the game-winning goal with 12 seconds left. Michael graduated from Radford University in May 2016, earning a degree in journalism and focusing on sports journalism and broadcasting. His goal is to work in sports media in Washington, D.C.
