ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The St. Louis Blues traded right winger T.J. Oshie to the Washington Capitals on Thursday for two players and a pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.

One St. Louis mom recorded her daughter’s reaction to the fan favorite’s departure:

“TJ Oshie left the team!TJ Oshie left the team!” she cries.  Then her mom explains  that Oshie will be back to visit when playing for the Washington Capitols play in St. Louis.  The girl replies, “Then we won’t want him to win!”

Oshie, the 24th overall pick in the 2005 NHL Draft, became a fan favorite in his 7 seasons with the Blues. He recorded 110 goals and 200 assists in 443 regular season games.

Perhaps Oshie’s finest hour came at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, where he converted 4 of 6 attempts in a penalty shootout to defeat the Russian hockey team 3-2 in a preliminary round game.

The Blues will receive right winger Troy Brouwer, goaltender Pheonix Copley, and a third-round pick.
