Capitals' T.J. Oshie: Pots career-high 33 goals

Oshie finished the 2016-17 season with 33 goals and 56 points through 68 games.

That's a 67-point pace over 82 games, which would have been a career best if he'd managed to stay healthy all season. Indeed, it was a banner year for Oshie, as he posted a career high in rating (plus-28) while picking up some of Alex Ovechkin's goal-scoring slack. The timing couldn't be better for the 30-year-old forward, as he's arguably the top free agent available this summer. Given Washington's cap situation, it could be problematic for the Capitals to re-sign Oshie, although he's indicated that he would like to stay in D.C. Whether he stays or goes, the U.S. Olympian remains one of the better top-six forwards in the league and should be a safe pick in next season's fantasy drafts.
