T.J. Oshie injury: Blues forward day-to-day with upper-body issue, not expected to play Thursday

Jonathan Daniel

T.J. Oshie sustained an injury on Tuesday night and is now considered day-to-day. It is unlikely that he will be available for Thursday night's game against Phoenix.

St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury, according to an announcement by the team on Wednesday afternoon.

He is considered doubtful for Thursday night's game against the Phoenix Coyotes.

Oshie sustained the injury during the team's game against the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night. It appears that Oshie hurt himself while attempting to finish a check on defenseman/forward Brent Burns. Oshie fell to the ice after the play and was visibly in discomfort.

Upon returning to the bench, he was seen on all fours in the tunnel being tended to by a trainer. He would leave the game and was unable to return.

Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch tweeted after the game that Oshie didn't look good in the locker room. In Rutherford's opinion, the injury did not appear to be minor. Oshie was not pressed for comment as injured players are not required to speak to the media.
