Caps make special arrangements for T.J. Oshie's dad, who has Alzheimer's

Caps make special arrangements for T.J. Oshie's dad, who has Alzheimer's

With the annual dads trip coming up, the Capitals are making special arrangements for T.J. Oshie. The team is allowing both his biological father, Tim Oshie, and his father-in-law, Dave Cosgrove, to come along. 

Tim, whom Oshie calls "Coach," has been battling Alzheimer's disease since at least 2012, according to an in-depth ESPN story published in 2014. 

Then playing for the Blues, Oshie described the episodes of disorientation and forgetfulness that led to his father's diagnosis. He and his family have been open about his father's Alzheimer's in hopes of raising awareness and letting people know they're not alone. 

The father and son due also participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer's back in 2014. 

"We have nothing right now as far as getting rid of it. With all the medicines and all the doctors in the world, I think it's something that hopefully we'll be able to stop – and get rid of sooner than later," Oshie told ESPN. "So that's why we talk about it, that's why we're open about it. Maybe not soon enough for my dad or for me, if that happens to be the case eventually down the road, but hopefully for my kids and my grandkids."

With Tim needing assistance to accompany his son on the Capitals' road trip, his father-in-law will there to help. 

The Caps pride themselves on a family atmosphere, so it's no surprise that the team would welcome an extra dad with open arms.

NHL fines New York Rangers forward for hitting former Capital with his own helmet

NHL fines New York Rangers forward for hitting former Capital with his own helmet

Everyone knew the Rangers would go after Dallas Stars forward Cody Eakin in New York on Wednesday after he laid out Henrik Lundqvist the last time these two teams met. But Rangers forward Chris Kreider went a bit too far which resulted in a fine from the NHL on Wednesday.

Eakin, a former Cap, delivered a high hit to the head of Lundqvist in December, an incident that earned Eakin a four-game suspension. Retribution was expected in Tuesday’s rematch and it came in the form of a fight between Eakin and Kreider.

During the fight, however, Kreider ripped off Eakin’s helmet and hit him with it, something that should have netted him a misconduct penalty. Instead, both players were assessed matching majors for fighting.

You can watch it here:

Kreider was assessed a $5,000 fine Wednesday, the maximum allowable amount under the current Collective Bargaining Agreement. He went on to score in the third period and both players finished with a goal and an assist apiece in what was a 7-6 Dallas win.
