Tom Wilson Listed Day-to-Day

It has been an up-and-down season for the Washington Capitals as they’ve been trying to overcome injuries to key players all season long. They started the year off with Nicklas Backstrom and Tom Wilson sidelined, then lost Connor Brown for the season and eventually lost John Carlson indefinitely. It has just been a revolving door of injuries for the Capitals, but they have kept their head above water as they sit in the second Wild Card spot with a 25-19-6 record and 56 points.

After getting Wilsona and Backstrom back in the lineup earlier this month, the injury woes have struck again. Forward Tom Wilson exited Tuesday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche with a lower-body injury after blocking a shot from Brad Hunt in the second period.

After the game, coach Peter Laviolette told reporters Wilson is day-to-day.

Prior to his newest injury, Wilson has played in just seven games this season, registering two goals and one assist. He has been recovering from offseason knee surgery after he tore his ACL in the first round of the playoff last year.

Hopefully, Wilson’s latest injury is nothing serious, as he is a key member of this team. On top of the offense he provides, Wilson provides this team with grit and physicality. Wilson is a tone-setter for the Capitals as he is not afraid to lay the body and deliver big hits, even if they are sometimes questionable.

Wilson has 117 goals and 159 assists for 276 points in 654 career games, all with the Capitals.
