Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- T.J. Oshie
T.J. (Timothy Jr.) Oshie was on born December 23, 1986 in Mount Vernon, Washington and played his high school hockey in Warroad, Minnesota before joining the Sioux Falls Stampede of the USHL in 2005. Oshie played three seasons for the Stampeded before beginning his NCAA career with the University of North Dakota, where he would also play three seasons.

Following his third season in North Dakota, T.J. would opt to forgo his final year of school and he signed a contract with the St. Louis Blues, the team that had drafted him 24th overall in 2005.

It didnt take Oshie long to endear himself to Blues fans. His skill and determination made him instantly one of the most popular players on the Blues and his #74 jerseys began to fly off shelves.

During the 2013-14 season, Oshie set career highs in both goals and points where he scored 21 goals and 60 points over 79 games.

As a member of Team USA at the 2014 Winter Olympics, Oshie's lore grew as he scored in the shootout to beat Russia at the games. This led to instant growth in popularity at home for the winger.

Prior to the 2015-16 season, Oshie was traded to the Washington Capitals for Troy Brouwer, Pheonix Copley and a third round draft pick.

Oshie would establish a new career high with 33 goals in 2016-17. The following season he helped lead the Capitals to the first Stanley Cup championship in franchise history, recording 21 points in 24 post-season games.

Aside from his appearance at the Olympics, Oshie has represented the United States in a World Junior Championship (2006), and three World Championships (2009, 2010, 2013).
