Oshie nabbed his 13th goal of the season in Monday's win over the Avalanche.
Oshie has been battling a lower-body injury lately, but it hasn't hindered his play too much, as he's been able to find twine in two straight contests. The overwhelming nature of the Blues' attack should keep point-gathering opportunities plentiful for Oshie; continue to keep him active.

Oshie skipped the Blues' morning skate, but coach Ken Hitchcock confirmed the forward would play Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Oshie has been hobbled a bit since taking a puck to the lower body Tuesday against Edmonton, but he was able to play in the Blues' next game Thursday against the Red Wings, skating 17:19. He'll likely get the occasional therapy day here and there to nurse the injury, but it shouldn't be viewed as anything that dramatically hinders his production going forward.

Oshie picked up an assist Tuesday in a win over Edmonton. He was plus-2 with three shots, one hit and a block on the night.
The assist was Oshie's 14th point in his last nine games as he and his teammates continue to light the ice on fire on offense. Oshie is still off of his scoring pace from last year, but is quickly making up for it in January.

Oshie pushed his point streak to seven games Thursday, scoring a goal and contributing a power-play assist.
Is this guy on fire or what? After netting 'just' a single point in each of the first four games of this streak, Oshie turned that little flame into a raging bonfire, as he's got a downright silly nine points in the last three games. Ride the wave.

Oshie assisted on three of David Backes' four goals in Tuesday's rout of the Coyotes.
The first two helpers were primary assists on the power play, with the very first one a particularly impressive pass that set Backes up on Mike Smith's doorstep with a wide-open net. Oshie's on a massive surge, having netted a hat trick himself on Saturday -- he now has a six-game point streak during which he's rattled off an awesome 11 points, nearly doubling his season total in that span. It looks like Oshie can quite safely return to being considered a reliable 50-to-60-point man.

Oshie dominated Saturday, recording three goals, an assist, five shots on goal, and four hits in a blowout win over the Sharks.
This guy is on fire. We can't even. Oshie has now scored in three straight games, currently sporting a five-game point streak (five goals, eight points). After managing just one goal and three points in his first 15 games, Oshie has turned his season around, notching nine goals and 17 points in his last 16 games. Playing on the first line and top power-play unit, Oshie should be owned in almost all leagues right now.

Oshie scored his seventh goal of the season in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Ducks, extending his modest point streak to four games.
Despite having posted a disappointing 16 points in 30 games this year, Oshie has come alive in the last month, grabbing 10 of his points over 12 games. He's also averaging 2.66 SOG (32 shots) over that span, so he's definitely worth a shot if he's available on your wire, and makes for an interesting trade target if you can get him for the right price. There's been grumblings of the 28-year-old being discussed in real-life trade talks -- with the Bruins being a potential suitor -- so it'll be interesting to see how he performs between now and the March trade deadline.

Oshie collected an assist and fired five shots on goal in Saturday's loss to the Stars.
A good offensive outing for Oshie, who had previously gone three straight games without recording a point. With five goals and 13 points in 27 games this season, Oshie has been a fantasy disappointment. After notching a career-high 60 points in 2013-14, Oshie is barley on pace to surpass the 30-point mark this time around. Skating on the top line with David Backes, Oshie should be producing more than he has thus far in 2014-15. A positive to draw on is the fact 10 of his 13 points this year have come in his last 12 games. The slow start is behind him, so he just needs to find some more consistency before we can start trusting him again in most formats.

Oshie (personal) will rejoin the Blues for their rematch with the Kings on Thursday, reports Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Family reasons kept Oshie out of Tuesday's win over Los Angeles, but he will be back for the Blues' next game and hope to keep his recent performance going - he has six points in his last four games, including two multi-point efforts.

Oshie will miss Tuesday's game against the Kings due to family reasons, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Oshie is expected to rejoin the team for their upcoming road trip, which kicks off with a rematch with the Kings in Los Angeles on Thursday. The winger had potted two goals and assisted on two more over his last two games, playing an integral role in the team's recent winning streak. Look for Joakim Lindstrom to replace him in Tuesday's lineup.
