18.9 - T.J. Oshie’s shooting percentage since the start of the 2016-17 season, tops in the League over that span (min. 100 SOG). Over the last 3+ seasons, Oshie has racked up 101 goals on 533 shots, including 67 at even strength and 15 of the game-winning variety.

Oshie narrowly holds that top spot over Winnipeg’s Mark Scheifele, (who the Caps will see tonight) checking in at 18.8. The two have battled each other for “most efficient shooter” title in recent seasons; going back to 2015-16 (and with a min. of 400 SOG), Scheifele takes over the top spot with 17.9% compared to Oshie’s 17.7%.

True to form, Scheifele scored on his only credited shot when these two teams clashed two nights ago, while Oshie was 0-for-1 (and has just one goal on his last 11 shots)... so one might think he’s due.
