Bio: Oshie was hoping to make the Olympic team in 2010, but he knew he needed to round out his game to merit consideration. Still an energetic, tenacious presence on the ice, he has worked hard to become a strong two-way player over his six seasons with St. Louis. Oshie was named an alternate captain for the first time this season and is on pace to eclipse his career high of 54 points. He is expected to play in Sochi with Blues linemate Backes.
