Coach Todd Reirden says Oshie will be out “quite some time” after sustaining an injury Thursday in Game 4 of of their first-round series against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Oshie left the contest — a 2-1 Carolina win which evened the series at 2-2 — with a little over five minutes left in the third period after Hurricanes forward Warren Foegele appeared to push him from behind into the boards.
Oshie was shaken up on the play and remained on the ice in visible pain before heading for the locker-room leaned over and clutching his left shoulder. Foegele was assessed a minor penalty for boarding on the play.
Reirden described the hit as “dirty” during his post-game press conference.
We’ll have to wait to see if the NHL’s Department of Player Safety agrees with Reirden’s sentiment.
