TJ Oshie is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury

TJ Oshie limped to his feet and left Washington’s game against the Nashville Predators on Saturday. Now, there’s an update on his condition and it’s not good.

The Capitals told traveling reporters before the morning skate in Carolina that Oshie is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury. The news was reported on Twitter by Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic.

Oshie left the game in the first period after attempting to review the Predators’ drive down the ice. Oshie wasn’t moving his left leg and slid into the defensive zone before returning to the bench. The coach helped him down the tunnel to the locker room.

Oshie now joins forwards Nicklas Backstrom, Tom Wilson, Connor Brown and Carl Hagelin all on the injured list. John Carlson will also miss Monday’s game at the Carolina Hurricanes with a lower-body injury.

Oshie, 35, is coming off an injury-prone 2021-22 season in which he missed 38 games with a lower-body injury (broken foot), an upper body (back), COVID and a covid-19 disease. he he also had core surgery in the offseason.

After 2022-23, Oshie has two seasons remaining on the eight-year, $46 million deal he signed in June 2017. His cap hit is $5.75 million.
