Oshie found his father on the ice amid the jubilant madness of the Washington Capitals‘ postgame celebration and wrapped him in a fierce hug.Five years after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease Authentic David Pastrnak Jersey , Tim Oshie’s memory is inconsistent and cloudy.Anyone who saw the depth of emotion in his Stanley Cup-winning son’s eyes Thursday night will never forget it.Right after Oshie won his first NHL title in the Capitals’ 4-3 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights, the veteran forward’s thoughts were on his family – particularly his father, who fostered his son’s love of the sport as a coach and a hockey dad in Everett, Washington, north of Seattle.”My dad, he doesn’t remember a lot of stuff these days,” Oshie said Brandon Montour Jersey Kids , his voice choking with emotion . ”He remembers enough. But I tell you what, he’s here tonight. I don’t know where he’s at, but this one will stick with him forever. You can guarantee that.”Moments later, Oshie found him.

They both later moved to Minnesota for T.J.’s high school career.”To have him here is amazing,” Oshie said of his father. ”He doesn’t travel very well, and I’ve been trying to figure out how to get him out all playoffs. It was kind of a perfect storm to get him with my aunt and sister out from Seattle.”Later in the celebration, Oshie went for a celebratory skate with his young daughters, Lyla and Leni.”Besides my family Womens Corey Perry Jersey , that’s one of the best feelings I’ve ever had,” he said. ”It’s for my family. For my two little girls. I got my name on something so they’ll know that dad played hockey when they grow up.”Oshie already carved out a place in hockey history four years ago while playing for the U.S. team at the Sochi Olympics.
