Washington Capitals winger TJ Oshie dedicates Stanley Cup win to Alzheimer's-afflicted father Ryan Gaydos

3 posts in this topic

Washington Capitals winger T.J. Oshie went right to his father immediately after his team defeated the Vegas Golden Knights, 4-3, to win the Stanley Cup on Thursday night.

The elder Oshie -- like his son, named Timothy -- has been battling Alzheimer’s disease for the last five years. This win was for him.

“My dad, he doesn't remember a lot of stuff these days,” Oshie said as his voice choked up. “He remembers enough. But I tell you what, he's here tonight. I don't know where he's at, but this one will stick with him forever. You can guarantee that.”
