Wednesday, new Caps acquisition TJ Oshie did an interview on DC101’s Elliot In The Morning to plug Washington’s home opener on October 10th. Two days removed from his first preseason game as a Capital, the show’s host, Elliot Segal, wondered what the new Caps first-line right wing felt when Barry Trotz announced him as a starter inside the locker room.
“I guess it’s a little exciting,” Oshie said. “You kind of get that jittery feeling kinda like you had in high school when the coach said you’re starting. With NHL hockey, I’ve been here a while. It seems more like a match-up type thing, but it’s always fun to start a game.”
That conversation led to something even more fascinating: Oshie discussed the last time he felt anxious on the ice.
