Capitals & # 39; Oshie Operated From a Clavicle Fracture


Washington Capitals winger TJ Oshie's fractured collarbone when Carolina Hurricanes striker, Warren Foegele, pushed him into the boards Thursday, and was operated on from the injury, announced Sunday the team.

The Caps said Oshie was away for an indefinite period, but the Washington Post reported Saturday that it was "almost certain" to be out for the playoffs.

Oshie was injured in the third period of the fourth game of the first-round playoff of the team and remained on the ice for several minutes after the stroke. He walked directly to the cloakroom, holding his right arm.

Washington captain Alex Ovechkin has called the incident "dirty play" from Foegele, who has received a minor penalty, but the rookie will not face any additional discipline from the league.

"I was trying to lift his stick, give him a little nudge," Foegele said Thursday. "It was a bit unfortunate to play there, I was not trying to hurt him or anything, I hope he's fine."

Oshie missed the fifth game on Saturday as Washington won 6-0 to take a 3-2 lead.
