Capitals’ T.J. Oshie Leaves Saturday’s Game vs. Islanders With Upper-Body Injury

The Washington Capitals announced that right-wing T.J. Oshie will not return due to an upper-body injury for Saturday’s matinee game against the New York Islanders at USB Arena.

According to Samantha Pell of The Washington Post, Oshie played roughly four minutes and missed shifts, including that on the power-play.

Prior to puck drop, the team also announced that left-wing Conor Sheary is unavailable due to the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol. He and defenseman John Carlson were not on the ice for warmups as they were awaiting test results, but Carlson was cleared to play.

The Capitals lead 1-0 after the first period.

    If not for bad luck, TJ Oshie would have no luck at all

    This guy simply cannot catch a break…played 2 shifts and POOF:(
    I wonder if he’s even played 6 games for us this year??

    • Diane Doyle says:

      “Officially”, he has played in 17 games but just one in November and one in January and a long space in December.

    Shame that all the injuries adn salary make him almost impossible to trade and get anything for; unless he comes back and scores 10 goals in 10 games and someone really thinks at 35 he is worth the chance to get The Cup. maybe time for both he and Backy to consider retirement before they are not able to walk anymore!
