Caps Wilson Not Going Anywhere

Tom_Wilson_2013The word out of Washington on Friday as the Caps told Wilson, their first-round pick (16th overall) at the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, that hell be with the big club for the remainder of the year.

The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Wilson made his Caps debut in last years playoffs, appearing in three games, then made the team out of training camp this season after a solid exhibition campaign.

While his minutes have been limited (hes played all seven games but is only averaging 6:42 TOI per), the Caps have been impressed by his toughness. Wilsons biggest impact this season has been with his fists, as he leads Washington with two fights hes actually the only Cap to have fought this season.
