Thomas "Tom" Wilson (born March 29, 1994) is a Canadian born professional ice hockey right winger currently playing for the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected in the first round, 16th overall, by the Capitals at the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career

Amateur

Wilson won the Gold Medal with Team Ontario at the 2011 World U-17 Hockey Challenge,[1] and was also selected to play in the 2012 CHL Top Prospects Game.[2] Prior to the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, he was rated as a top prospect who was expected to be a first-round selection in the Draft.[3] The 6'4", 210-pound Wilson was eventually picked 16th overall in the Draft by the Washington Capitals, and excelled in an expanded offensive role with the Plymouth Whalers, his Ontario Hockey League (OHL) club; his third-year stats (23 goals and 58 points) more than doubled his previous year's output (nine goals and 27 points).

Professional

On May 10, 2013, Wilson made his NHL debut when he suited up with the Capitals for Game 5 of their 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs series against the New York Rangers.[4] During that game, he had one memorable shift during which he lost a skate blade after a check on the boards, and was forced to struggle back to the bench on one skate while play carried on.[5][6]

On October 3, 2013, during the 2013-14 season, Wilson participated in his first career NHL fight, taking on Lance Bouma of the Calgary Flames. He scored his first career goal just over one month later, on November 5, against Evgeni Nabokov of the New York Islanders.

Wilson scored his first career playoff goal in overtime of Game 1 of the 2017 Eastern Conference Quarter-Finals against the Toronto Maple Leafs, giving the Capitals the 4-3 win. During Game 4 of the same series, Wilson scored two goals and saved a goal in the same game, diving across the crease to help his goalie Braden Holtby keep the puck out of the net, helping the Capitals tie the series at two games each. The Capitals would eventually lose in seven games in the next round against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

On December 6, 2017, Wilson scored four points in one game for the first time in his NHL career. He scored two goals and two assists to help the Capitals beat the Chicago Blackhawks.[7]

Suspensions

On September 22, 2017 in a preseason game against St. Louis Blues, Wilson caught forward Robert Thomas with a late hit, resulting in the two preseason game ban. [8]

The NHL suspended Wilson for the first four games of the regular season for boarding St. Louis Blues rookie forward Sammy Blais during each team's 2017 preseason finale. [9]
