Oshie (collarbone) is expected to be healthy in time for training camp in September, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Oshie suffered a broken collarbone April 18, but Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan indicated his recovery is going well and the team expects him to be good to go for preseason. It may take some time for the 32-year-old winger to get back into form, but his fantasy upside as a top-six forward on an offensively talented team remains high even coming off an injury, so keep him in mind for your drafts.
Oshie's injury has been clarified as a broken collarbone, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. A broken collarbone likely explains why Oshie has been ruled out for the remainder of the postseason. The winger should have enough time to get back to 100 percent prior to the start of the 2019-20 campaign, though it will certainly be something for fantasy owners to monitor during training camp.
Oshie (upper body) is "highly unlikely" to return this postseason, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. It's rather ominous that Oshie's recovery could span beyond the postseason, especially knowing that the Stanley Cup playoffs run all the way through early June. The Capitals will be looking for another offensive spark from Devante Smith-Pelly -- who made a big splash en route to the franchise's Stanley Cup win in 2018 -- now that he's been recalled from AHL Hershey as a reinforcement for Oshie.
Following Thursday's 2-1 Game 4 loss to the Hurricanes, coach Todd Rierden told reporters Oshie (upper body) will be out "for quite some time," Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports. Unfortunately this news comes as no surprise, as it was obvious that Oshie was likely dealing with a significant injury when he was writhing on the ice in pain after being boarded by Carolina's Warren Foegele in the third period of Thursday's loss. Foegele was only assessed a minor penalty for the hit, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him face supplemental discipline from the NHL. The Capitals have yet to release any details regarding the specific nature of Oshie's injury or a potential timetable for his recovery, but at this point it's safe to assume he'll miss the rest of the conference quarterfinals at a minimum.
Oshie headed straight to the locker room after suffering an apparent upper-body injury in the third period of Thursday's Game 5 against the Hurricanes. Oshie suffered the injury when he crashed face first into the boards after being contacted by Carolina's Warren Foegele from behind. The American winger writhed on the ice in pain before gingerly skating straight to the locker room. More information regarding Oshie's condition should surface ahead of Saturday's Game 5, but at this point it appears as though he may be in danger of missing extended time.
