TJ Oshie’s dad talks first grandbaby and hockey

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– St. Louis Blues player TJ Oshie doesn’t need much of an introduction around town.

Fox’s 2’s Angie Mock sat down with his dad. It`s the first time for Timothy, to become a granddad.

On March 18th, TJ and his fiancé Lauren welcomed Lila Grace Oshie into the world but according to Timothy, TJ has been to the hospital every day. Pictures have surfaced on Twitter with tubes connected to little Lila and she`s expected to stay in the hospital for another three weeks.

Oshie has a beautiful daughter to add to his Olympic success.

His dad saw young talent in his son growing up but there was a moment after TJ scored a couple of goals his rookie season that he knew St. Louis was TJ`s home.

Even with all of TJ`s new found success, Timothy says little Oshie gets his humble attitude from his grandfather. Timothy`s mom and dad were the daycare while he and his wife were at work.

A simple humble lesson that has helped this young man grow and develop roots in St. Louis and showcase them on a national stage. It`s been one wild ride for TJ Oshie this year and St. Louisans are excited to more good times to come.
