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 he?ll be with the big club for the remainder of the year.

The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Wilson made his Caps debut in last year?s 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 (he?s played all seven games but is only averaging 6:42 TOI per), the Caps have been impressed by his toughness. Wilson?s biggest impact this season has been with his fists, as he leads Washington with two fights ? he?s actually the only Cap to have fought this season.
