Capitals Place T.J. Oshie On Injured Reserve

The Washington Capitals placed right-wing T.J. Oshie on injured reserve due to a lower-body injury sustained in the team’s 4-0 win at the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.

The 34-year-old did not play in the Capitals’ 5-2 loss to the Seattle Kraken on Sunday.

Injured reserve rules state that Oshie must miss at least seven days, meaning he will be eligible to return at the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday.

Saturday marked the first time Oshie played in 10 games after sustaining a foot injury.

The Capitals recalled right-wing Beck Malenstyn and center Michael Sgarbossa prior to their game against the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday (7 PM ET, NBC Sports Washington) and both will supposedly draw into the lineup.

Oshie, who has four goals and seven points in eight games this season, was on the ice during Wednesday’s morning skate.

The Capitals also host the Florida Panthers on Friday.
