ARLINGTON, V.A. — T.J. Oshie is in high spirits and has been taking part in informal skates and scrimmages, but he was not on the ice for skate tests on Thursday. This is due to a procedure he had in the offseason.
Per the team, Oshie had surgery to resolve an undisclosed upper-body injury. However, it is not a long-term thing, and he will be back for practice on Friday.
The 35-year-old dealt with a myriad of injuries in 2021-22 that limited him to just 44 games. However, he still managed 11 goals and 14 assists for 25 points. Oshie also had a stellar outing in the postseason, leading the team with six goals and one assist through six games against the Florida Panthers.
At exit day in May, Oshie mentioned that he had some work to do on the body after experiencing a lot of wear and tear in the postseason.
