The Washington Capitals announced on Sunday that TJ Oshie has successfully undergone a surgical procedure on his fractured right clavicle, or collarbone.
His timeline for return is still indefinite, though this means we have likely seen the last of Oshie for the remainder of the playoffs as previously reported.

Oshie was injured in Game Four after being boarded by Carolina’s Warren Foegele. He tweeted his thanks for support from the team and fans, stating that he was in good hands with training staff and doctors and “especially mama bear at home with her [two] little helpers.”
Fans chanted Oshie’s name during Game Five and he responded over Twitter.

Oshie is the second major injury to the Capitals roster as the team continues its quest to defend its title. Michal Kempny was also ruled out for four to six months following surgery on his torn hamstring.
