In adorable children news, TJ Oshie and Karl Alzner took their kids to the zoo today.
Last week, 2016 Vezina Trophy winner Braden Holtby said Carey Price would be the “smart choice” to start in goal for Team Canada. If Canada actually turns to Holtby during the World Cup of Hockey, Caps winger and Team USA member TJ Oshie just gave him something extra to think about – especially during the shootout.
In the run-up to the World Cup of Hockey, Team USA goaltender Ben Bishop spoke to ESPN’s Chuck Gormley about which players in the tournament have the best offensive skills.
He mentioned a lot of Caps players.
On Sunday, Anson met another Caps baby born this summer, Leni Rose Oshie. Leni is TJ and Lauren Oshie’s second child born in late June.
Wednesday afternoon, Washington Capitals winger and American hero TJ Oshie took the 22 Pushups Challenge after being challenged by teammate Karl Alzner. The exercise encourages awareness about the staggering statistic that an average of 22 veterans are killed by suicide every day and the mental health issues that can lead to these tragedies.
In a social media campaign debuted on Friday, the NHL made their Adidas-designed World Cup of Hockey jerseys available for purchase in their online store and they’re lit, fam.
Capitals skaters Evgeny Kuznetsov (Russia) and John Carlson (USA) act as models for their respective countries along with fellow superstars Sidney Crosby, Connor McDavid, Daniel Sedin, and several others.
This weekend, Washington Capitals winger TJ Oshie is participating in what is called the super bowl of celebrity sports: the American Century Championship. Held at the Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Stateline, Nevada, Oshie joined 80 pro athletes and Hollywood celebrities such as Charles Barkley, Aaron Rodgers, Justin Timberlake, Steph Curry, Larry The Cable Guy, Ray Romano, and Roger Clemens for the opportunity to win a share of the tournament’s $600,000 purse.
After the first round Friday, Oshie’s two points puts him in a tie for 46th place with former Orioles and Yankees pitcher David Wells. See the full leaderboard here. Oshie shot 14 over par, registering a birdie on holes three and eleven.
After becoming a shootout hero in the Olympics, TJ Oshie has become the National Hockey League player most synonymous with America. So it was only appropriate that on the United States’ 240th birthday, the Capitals winger wished the hockey world a “happy fourth.”
To do so, Oshie posted a personal photo of his locker stall from the Sochi Olympics.
Earlier this week, TJ Oshie’s wife Lauren gave birth to the couple’s second child, Leni Rose. The Oshies have posted several adorable photos since, including this pic featuring Papa, Lyla, and Leni.
Wednesday, the Oshie family got one tiny human bigger. Lauren Oshie gave birth to the couple’s second child, a girl, Leni Rose Oshie. She was six pounds, ten ounces.
Tiny, Penguin-hating Lyla is now an older sister.
