New first-line winger TJ Oshie is a stick-handling wizard. That at least is clear. Oshie became a household name in the United States when he singlehandedly defeated Russia in an Olympic shootout. Caps fans first got a taste of his dangling ability during the preseason when Oshie went three-for-three in the skills competition.
Now RMNB reader Anthony Conard Jr. brings us this mind-blowing video from Tuesday’s pregame warmups against the San Jose Sharks. Watch as Oshie gets tossed a puck from the bench and gets fancy.
Oshie catches the puck on the blade of his stick, tosses it on to his skate, kicks the puck into the air back onto his stick, does some juggling, then tosses it right into the hands of a fan.
This is insane.
