The Washington Capitals' title defense may have to continue without T.J. Oshie.

The forward "won't be playing anytime soon" after Carolina Hurricanes winger Warren Foegele cross-checked him from behind in the third period of the Capitals' 2-1 loss Thursday, head coach Todd Reirden said postgame.

The Department of Player Safety will review the hit, according to The Athletic's Chris Kuc.

Oshie was taken directly to the X-ray room while in serious distress, according to reporters, including NBC's Brian McNally.

Foegele was assessed a two-minute minor for boarding, but Washington wasn't able to capitalize and Carolina held on to win.
