Oshie Wearing Neck Guard For Capitals-islanders

Washington Capitals' T.J. Oshie is wearing a neck guard during games, inspired by a tragic incident involving player Adam Johnson.

The neck guard is part of Oshie's specially designed shirt, provided by his sports apparel company, Warroad.

Due to high demand, Warroad has sold out of the TILO neck and wrist base layer tops for the general public.
