During the first period opposing the Washington Capitals to the Detroit Red Wings, TJ Oshie got rocked by a solid hit from Riley Sheahan. Oshie left the ice immediately after the contact, holding his left arm.
The Caps then got a 5 minutes major power-play when Tom Wilson was hit from behind by Danny Dekeyser. Wilson made it back to the game a few minutes after the NHL concussion protocol.
TJ Oshie has been valuable, to say the least, so far this season with 8 goals and 4 assists. A top6 forward year-long, Oshie is also a threat on the power-play and an incredible PK player, making him one of the most complete forward in the lineup. If he was to miss a few games, his absence would be deeply felt by the Washington's organization.
