T.J. M.I.A. In Practice, Blues Call Absence "Unexcused"

68

Practice for the Blues sure was interesting today. Alex Steen and Barret Jackman were back skating and Vladimir Sobotka was cleared to play. Good times. On the other end of the spectrum, Jeremy Rutherford of the PD and John Kelly of FSN report that T.J. Oshie was not a practice and it was an unexcused absence. Not good times. We don't know the details, but feel free to wildly speculate. I'm sure young Teej was just really tired after watching North Dakota advance to the Frozen Four this weekend. Just a reminder, last season (I think), Patrik Berglund missed a practice when his alarm didn't go off and the Blues suspended him a game. Let's see what happens to Teej.
