TJ Oshie (lower body) and Conor Sheary (upper body) could play for the Capitals when they host the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSWA, BSOH, ESPN +, NHL LIVE).
The forwards, who each missed six games, were full participants in training on Friday after previously wearing non-contact jerseys in practice.
“It’s great that they’re out there,” Capitals coach Peter Laviolette said. “I think they’re going in a direction where we’re going to come in and talk about things and see where they’re at. “
Centre Nicklas Backstrom, who has not played this season due to a left hip injury, also made a full contribution to training for the first time after wearing a non-contact jersey while skating with the Capitals in La last week.
Laviolette confirmed that Oshie, Sheary and Backstrom were allowed to make contact, but said Backstrom was not as close to playing as the other two.
“Oshie and Sheary have been on the team all year and ‘Backy’ has been working on something,” Laviolette said. “It turns out that today they all came back together, which is really good. “
Laviolette said he did not know if the attackers Carl Hagelin (interview) and Hathaway Garnet (maintenance) and defender John Carlson (maintenance) will be available to play after they have not practiced on Friday.
