T.J. OSHIE ANNOUNCES PASSING OF HIS FATHER AFFECTIONATELY KNOWN AS 'COACH OSHIE'

MAY 4, 2021  (10H30)      TIM TUCKER
Some sad news out of the hockey world on Tuesday. Washington Capitals forward T.J. Oshie announced the passing of his father Tim Oshie, known around the league as "Coach", after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.

"It's with a heavy heart today that my family mourns the passing of my Dad «Coach Oshie"," T.J. Tweeted. "Coach lived life to the fullest and was unanimously loved by everyone who met him. Thanks to all the family and friends for their support. Heaven received a legend today. #RIPCoachOsh"


Tim Oshie was there when his son won the Stanley Cup in 2018. However, he was unable to join the team and his son on future "Mentor's nights" as his condition deteriorated. In December of 2019, a notable moment occurred when the other fathers who had travelled with the team for Mentor's Night had Tim join them via Facetime. He was also sent a brand new Capitals' jersey with his son's number and name on the back.


Tim Oshie was known as "Coach" after spending years as a coach and mentor for youth hockey players. He was also heavily involved with the organizational aspects of the T.J. Oshie Charity Golf Tournament, which has raised funds for various charities over the years. Our sincere condolences to T.J. Oshie and his family at this trying time.
