Oshie (upper body) will not be available for Saturday's clash with the Ducks, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Barry Trotz has been adamant that Oshie needed to take part in a full practice before returning to a game and the winger was only able to join practice for a portion of the time Friday. The Caps aren't in action again until Tuesday's matchup with Dallas, which gives Oshie another opportunity to reach this next hurdle in his recovery from injury.

Oshie (upper body) won't travel for Thursday's game against Boston, though he may practice Friday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's discouraging that Oshie's already been ruled out for games Tuesday and Thursday, but there's hope that he'll have a clear timetable for his return Friday. The American winger is currently tied with James Neal (VGK), Brad Marchand (BOS) and Clayton Keller (ARI) for 30th in points among NHL wingers with 10 goals and 13 assists through 28 games, meaning his continued absence hurts a great deal of fantasy owners.

Oshie (upper body) will not play Tuesday night against the visiting Avalanche, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

EDGE Analysis

Make it four straight absences for one of the NHL's premier scorers. The Capitals are deep enough up front to hold their own offensively without Oshie -- as evidenced by their winning two of the past three games and collecting 10 combined goals in such victories -- but you'd have to be in quite the shallow fantasy league to not be impacted by the shifty pivot's absence. Oshie's next opportunity to suit up now comes Thursday against the Bruins.

Oshie (upper body) skated on his own Sunday morning but won't play Monday's road contest against the Islanders, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

With his absence for Monday already confirmed, Oshie will now have missed three games with the ailment. His ability to skate Sunday is certainly a positive sign, but Oshie's participation in Tuesday's game against Colorado is also in doubt, as Washington will likely want Oshie to take part in a full-contact practice or two before being thrown back into game action. Expect the Caps to provide more information after returning home from Monday's game.

Coach Barry Trotz told reporters he doesn't know when Oshie (upper body) will resume practicing, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Trotz also said Oshie was improving, the news that the winger's recovery timeline is uncertain doesn't bode well for his absence being short term. Until the 30-year-old is able to take contact in practice, he won't be given the all-clear to return to game action. For now, Oshie hasn't been placed on IR, but that could change if the Caps need a roster spot.

Oshie (upper body), as expected, will not suit up against the Blackhawks on Wednesday, Tarik El-Bashir of NBC Sports Washington reports.

EDGE Analysis

Oshie will miss his first game of the 2017-18 campaign due to his upper-body malady. While the winger is still finding ways to contribute offensively (six assists), he has been unable to shake off a seven-game goal drought. Part of the reason the Everett, Washington native isn't finding the back of the net is his limited shots. During his goalless streak, the 26-year-old has only fired eight pucks on goal -- barely over one per game. Alex Chiasson will likely get a look at a top-six role during Oshie's absence.

Oshie (upper body) did not skate at Tuesday's practice and is considered "very doubtful" to play Wednesday's game against Chicago, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

After struggling with injuries for much of last season, Oshie has not missed a game thus far in this campaign, so, assuming he doesn't go, Wednesday would mark his first. Fortunately for fantasy owners and the Capitals, the University of North Dakota alum continues to carry a day-to-day designation, indicating that this is not likely a serious injury.

Oshie (upper body) left Monday's contest against San Jose and will not return.

EDGE Analysis

With 23 points in 27 games, Oshie is currently on pace to set a career high in points. This would obviously be a huge blow to Washington's offense, but the severity of the injury is still unclear. He'll be considered day-to-day for now.

Oshie picked up three assists in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

EDGE Analysis

Oshie is well on his way to career-high numbers this season. He has 22 points (10 goals, 12 assists) in 25 games, which projects to just over 70 points. Oshie's best-overall season came in 2013-14 (60 points). Enjoy the ride.

Oshie finished with a goal and an assist during Washington's 3-1 win over the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old winger has points in three straight and seven points in his last seven contests. A dependable 50-point player over the last few seasons, Oshie has a good chance to meet or exceed that mark, so make sure he's in your lineup every night.
