As T.J. Oshie took to the podium, you can imagine reporters were dying to ask him about the unique way he chugs his beer through his shirt. When was the origin of that? Was that a thing from college? Did it come this season? We got our answer plus more from his exit interview session.

Oshie said it was a thing that began this season and in typical peer fashion, once you do something funny they’ll want to see it again and again.

Okay time for the serious news concerning Oshie. You might remember how he suffered a lower-body injury towards the end of the regular season. While he did appear in every playoff game, he took maintenance days in the first round where he sat out of practices and morning skates. He participated in practices once the second round began.

Oshie said that while there was something nagging him during the playoffs, he was the healthiest at the start of the Stanley Cup Finals. No surgery will be required.
