Forward T.J. Oshie, who can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, said Friday his preference is to stay with the Washington Capitals. Defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk said he'll explore the market.

"Right now, I'm a Capital, and I feel like that's where I'll be," Oshie said. "If something changes, it changes."

The 30-year-old right wing was speaking before his exit meetings with Capitals coaches and general manager Brian MacLellan.

Shattenkirk, also speaking two days after Washington's season ended with a 2-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Second Round, said he plans to become a free agent.

"I think I do have to weigh out a lot of my options, I have to talk to some teams and see who else is interested," the 28-year-old said.

Oshie, who was acquired by the Capitals in a trade with the St. Louis Blues on July 2, 2015, scored 33 goals this season, seven more than his NHL career high of last season. He had 56 points in 68 regular-season games this season after getting 51 points in 80 games last season.
