The Washington Capitals had an optional skate today at noon at MedStar Capitals Iceplex, and the Capitals have just announced TJ Oshie is out week to week with a lower-body injury.
From the Caps:
Injury update: #Caps forward T.J. Oshie sustained a lower body injury on Wednesday vs. Detroit. He is listed as week-to-week

Oshie, 34, played a full game on Wednesday, playing 18.5 minutes and recording an assist in Washington’s overtime loss to Detroit. Samantha Pell points out that Oshie blocked a shot late in the game but took shifts afterwards.
TJ Oshie takes a huge slapshot off the side of the leg. Struggling to the bench. This is on top of getting stitches to his kneecap this past weekend after doing this. https://t.co/yZZQR2U5ZX
