It wsa a shot heard round the world from Minnesota to Marquette. TJ Oshie is a national icon, and everyone is wanting to wear the red, white and blue with the seven and four.

“Tiffany Jefferson – UND Lead at Sioux Shop: “We actually opened up at 10 and there already 7 people in line ready to buy their Oshie gear and get them personalized.

Following the win, the Sioux Shop at the University of North Dakota, sold 20 jerseys and more than 60 t-shirts; over $5,500 in sales of Team USA Oshie products, selling out by 3 p-m on Saturday.

Tiffany Jefferson: “We actually had one last jersey that was made for display. It was actually right up there next to Parise and our manager had to climb up there to get it down to sell it and that was the very last one.

It’s demand for a jersey that won't be deterred.

John Jaques – Warroad, MN Resident: “Well I'll tell you what, I know my son at home wants one. He's 8 and he really likes TJ Oshie, so we'll do the best we can to get him one one of these days, if not today, maybe soon.”

The shop is hoping to have more t-shirts by the middle of the week, with jerseys arriving by the start of next week.
