TJ Oshie skates for first time since injury before Capitals morning skate
The Washington Capitals took the ice Wednesday at the MedStar Capitals Iceplex hours before they are set to face their Metropolitan Division rival Pittsburgh Penguins.
Get some work done before the rest of your peers TJ Oshie. The team has previously stated Oshie would be out “indefinitely” after limping in a game against the Nashville Predators on Oct. 29.
It’s good news on Wednesday.

In that game, Oshie left in the first period after trying to check a Predators drive down the ice. He was seen without moving his left leg and slid into the defensive zone before turning back to the bench. He was then helped down the tunnel by a trainer to the locker room.
He has missed five games with the Caps since then.
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 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.
