T. J. Oshie RW STL 3 Days

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.

Oshie netted the overtime-winning goal Saturday against the Avalanche.

That's three goals and six points in four games for Oshie, who has caught fire after recording only six points (two goals) in his first 19 games. The top-line winger has now scored two game-winning goals this season and has been credited with nine shots on goal over his last two games. Now that he's found his stride, Oshie is worth looking at, as the red-hot Blues have won four straight games and sit second in the Western Conference.

Oshie scored a goal, assisted on two more and went plus-1 in Thursday's win over the Blues.

Oshie continues to score in fits and starts, so we'd like to see more consistency from him, but this is his second multi-point game in the last three, and he has two goals and three assists in that span. Going back further, those three contests are the only only times he's been on the scoresheet in the last 12 games.

Oshie notched a goal and assist -- both on the power play -- in Saturday's victory over the Islanders.

Oshie only had one point on the man advantage in his previous 19 games this season. He's averaging less than a half-point per game for the Blues, a level of production that has underwhelmed considering the winger submitted a career-best 60-point campaign in 2013-14.

Oshie registered his first multi-point game of the season to date, scoring a goal and adding two assists in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over Edmonton.

With just three points in 15 games coming into this one, Oshie has been one of the biggest disappointments of the season to date. However, Oshie may have finally turned the corner with this excellent outing. At this point, fantasy owners can do little more than cross their fingers and hope they see more of the same from Oshie in the coming weeks.

Oshie finally got his first goal of the year Thursday, scoring on a first-period power play against the Predators in his return from a concussion.

A 60-point scorer last year, Oshie opened this season by going scoreless in six games, finally picked up an assist, and then ended up missing two weeks with the concussion. The Blues wasted no time redeploying him, as Oshie skated a whopping 22:58 on Thursday.

Oshie (concussion) has been activated from injured reserve and will play Thursday against the Predators.

Oshie looked like a game-time decision for Thursday after taking part in the team's optional morning skate, but it sounds like he's already received the OK from the team's medical staff to return to the lineup. It's uncertain where Oshie will slot in for the Blues since the team didn't have all hands on deck for the morning skate, but it seems possible that the team would ease him back into action by using him in reduced minutes as part of the second or third line. For that reason, along with his early offensive struggles (one point in eight games) prior to suffering the head injury, it may be wise for Oshie's fantasy owners to wait a game or two before inserting him back into their lineups.

Oshie (concussion) took some contact at Thursday's morning skate and could be an option for the Blues' game against the Predators, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Oshie has been free of concussion symptoms for the last couple of days and was able to resuming practicing Wednesday, making it possibly that he might suit up if he continues to feel 100 percent once game time rolls around. However, because Thursday was his first day taking contact in a session that wasn't especially rigorous, coach Ken Hitchcock and the Blues' medical staff could exercise precaution and hold Oshie out for the eighth straight game. In any case, assuming he incurs no further setbacks with his recovery from the concussion, Oshie looks highly probable to be available for Saturday's tilt against the Capitals at the latest. The Blues have already signaled that Oshie is close to a return with their decision to send Dmitrij Jaskin back to the minors Thursday.

Coach Ken Hitchcock said Oshie (concussion) will not be an option for Tuesday's game against the Sabres, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.

The news doesn't come as much of a surprise since Oshie first resumed practicing in a non-contact capacity Monday. It's not certain if he'll be cleared to take part in a full-contact session Wednesday, but if that ends up materializing, Oshie could have a legitimate shot at making his return to game action Thursday against Nashville.
