T.J. Oshie: ‘The American Heroes Are Wearing Camo. That’s Not Me’


February 15, 2014

T.J. Oshie was hailed as an American hero Saturday after his four shootout goals powered the U.S. Olympic hockey team past Russia in the 2014 Winter Olympics. His Wikipedia bio was even changed — albeit briefly — to reflect this new title.

But, as the St. Louis Blues forward told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s Dejan Kovacevic, Oshie does not view himself that way. To him, the nation’s real heroes have nothing to do with hockey.
