Blues’ Oshie back skating, one week after ankle surgery

It didn’t take long for TJ Oshie to get back on skates following ankle surgery.

Seven days, to be exact.

That was the news out of St. Louis on Tuesday morning as NHL.com’s Lou Korac reported Oshie resume skating, seven days after undergoing a procedure to fix a stress fracture.

The Blues originally thought they were getting Oshie back last week. The day prior to his surgery, he was skating with the club and head coach Ken Hitchcock said it was Oshie’s “best day” since being placed on injured reserve on Apr. 2.

Shortly thereafter, they discovered the stress fracture.

The loss has been a tough one for St. Louis, who already saw Oshie lose a handful of games earlier this season to a rib injury.

The 26-year-old was having a solid campaign, posting 7G-13A-20PTS in 30 games while averaging over 19 minutes per game.

Oshie also leads the team in power-play assists, with eight.

As for when he’ll return? Last week, the former first-round pick told True Hockey’s Andy Strickland his goal is to return for the opening game of the playoffs.
