Capitals’ Oshie Back On Ice, Skating By Himself Amid Injury



Capitals forward T.J. Oshie

ARLINGTON, V.A. — The Washington Capitals got an encouraging sign on Friday, as T.J. Oshie took the ice by himself prior to practice on Friday as he deals with an upper-body injury.

The 35-year-old was hurt in Wednesday’s 4-2 preseason win over the Detroit Red Wings after taking a hard hit into the boards from Joe Veleno. He exited the game and did not return, and was listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury. The severity of it is unclear at this time.

However, it’s a major positive to see him skating, stickhandling and taking shots. He was in a blue jersey, indicating non-contact, though he was skating on his own.

Oshie has faced a lot of adversity in the injury department over the last year. He played in just 44 games last season due to a myriad of upper and lower-bdoy ailments. He still finished with 25 points.

Going into the season, Oshie underwent core surgery.
