Top Tom Wilson News

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Won't return before break

    Wilson (lower body) won't play until after the All-Star break, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Wilson, who sat out Thursday's contest against Pittsburgh after getting injured Tuesday versus Colorado following a shot block, will miss at least the next two games. The Capitals return from the break Feb. 11 in Boston. Wilson has supplied two goals, one assist, 13 shots on net and 33 hits in eight appearances this season. Anthony Mantha stands a good chance to stay in Washington's top six up front until Wilson is able to return.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Not practicing Saturday

    Wilson (lower body) was absent from practice Saturday, per Samantha Pell of The Washington Post.

    Wilson didn't play Thursday after suffering a lower-body Tuesday against Colorado. It appears that his status is in question for Sunday's contest in Toronto. Wilson has played in just eight games this season, logging two goals and an assist.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Not playing Thursday

    Wilson (lower body) won't play Thursday versus the Penguins, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Wilson was injured Tuesday versus the Avalanche while blocking a shot. The Capitals will have reinforcements on the way with Nicklas Backstrom (illness) and T.J. Oshie (personal) rejoining the lineup. Wilson's next chance to play is Sunday in Toronto.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Game-time decision Thursday

    Wilson (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's showdown with the Penguins, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Wilson exited in the second period of Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche and did not partake in Thursday's morning skate, but is officially a game-time call. The 28-year-old winger has two goals and three points in eight games -- alongside a paltry minus-7 rating.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Won't finish contest

    Wilson (lower body) won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Avalanche.

    Wilson blocked a shot off of his right leg in the second period, which is the opposite leg from the one he had ACL surgery on last spring. He can be considered day-to-day for now, and he'll likely be evaluated further when the Capitals return home to face the Penguins on Thursday.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Multi-point performance in win

    Wilson scored a goal and an assist on one shot, helping the Capitals to a 4-0 win over the Coyotes on Thursday.

    Wilson scored a second-period power-play goal by redirecting Dmitry Orlov's point shot to extend the Capitals' lead to 3-0. He also picked up an assist on Sonny Milano's goal earlier in the period. Wilson notched his first multi-point game since returning from a torn ACL and has three points in six games. The Canadian forward should continue to skate in the Capitals' top-six forward corps and second power-play unit.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Gets first goal of season

    Wilson scored a goal on seven shots and levied seven hits in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders.

    Wilson got on the scoresheet in his fourth game of the season, tallying a second-period goal. The 28-year-old has been plenty physical since returning from offseason ACL surgery -- he has 21 hits already this season. He's added nine shots on net, six PIM and a minus-1 rating while filling a middle-six role.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Dishing out hits

    Wilson has delivered 10 hits in his first two games back from a long-term injury absence.

    Wilson made his 2022-23 season debut against the Blue Jackets on Sunday. While the Toronto-born winger has managed just one shot in his first two games back in the lineup, his physicality is probably what he is best known for and that has been on full display. Still, Wilson has shown an offensive upside when playing with Alex Ovechkin's wing and could find himself back in that role before long.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Ready for season debut

    Wilson (knee) will be activated off injured reserve and make his season debut Sunday against Columbus, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

    Wilson has yet to play this season after undergoing ACL surgery in late May, but he's been a full participant at practice for over two weeks at this point, so he probably won't have any limitations versus the Blue Jackets. Look for the 28-year-old winger, who racked up 24 goals, 52 points and 240 hits through 78 games last season, to slot into a top-six role and a spot on one of Washington's power-play units Sunday against the Blue Jackets.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Close to debuting

    According to coach Peter Laviolette, although Wilson (knee) isn't expected to play Thursday against Ottawa, he's "getting closer" to making his season debut, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Wilson is clearly on the verge of making his season debut, but he may have to wait for the calendar to flip to 2023 to do so. Once given the green light, look for the 28-year-old bruiser to slot into a top-six role and a spot on one of Washington's power-play units.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Cleared for contact

    Wilson (knee) is practicing in a normal jersey Wednesday.

    This is a major step in Wilson's recovery, as it marks the first time he's taken contact in a practice this season. The 28-year-old winger will likely need to log a number of full practices before getting the green light to enter the lineup, but it appears as though Wilson will likely be cleared to make his season debut sooner rather than later. He racked up 24 goals, 52 points, 151 shots and 240 hits through 78 games last season.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Traveling with team

    Wilson (knee) is traveling with the Capitals as part of his recovery but remains without a clear recovery timeline. Coach Peter Laviolette told reporters Tuesday, "They're ramping up their practices. They're looking really good to me out on the ice. Not there yet. ...'When will they back?' I don't have the answer to that yet," per Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic.

    Wilson had just started practicing with the team last week, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to see he won't be back from his long-term injury soon. Still, the rugged winger is clearly making strides in his recovery. Once cleared to play, Wilson could be in line for a spot on the top line with Alex Ovechkin, a role he has filled in the past, though Conor Sheary has been thriving in that spot to start the year.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Back at practice Friday

    Wilson (knee) is practicing in a non-contact jersey Friday, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    This was the first time this season Wilson has been on the ice before practice with his teammates as he recovers from offseason surgery. Wilson could get into the lineup at some point in December, but no firm timetable has been established for his return.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Back on skates

    Wilson (knee) has resumed skating, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Wilson hasn't skated at practice yet, but he has been skating with the also injured Nicklas Backstrom (hip). Wilson had offseason ACL surgery in late May and the timetable for his recovery was estimated at 6-8 months. He had 24 goals and 52 points with 240 hits and 151 shots on goal in 2021-22. The 28-year-old is not close to returning at this time.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Starting on injured non-roster list

    Wilson (knee) will start the season on the injured non-roster list, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Wilson has been making progress in his recovery from offseason ACL surgery, but he is not expected to be available to play until at least December.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Progressing well

    Wilson (knee) is making progress in his recovery from ACL surgery, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

    Wilson is expected to do some light participation on the ice during the Capitals' training camp. The progress he's made doesn't change his expected timeline -- the winger is still likely to be out until at least December, even if he can avoid setbacks. Fantasy managers can target the 28-year-old late in drafts if they want to add some toughness and can stash him in an IR spot for the first two months of the season.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Recovery still on track

    Wilson (knee) is progressing in his rehab and is still tracking for a return in December, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    The 28-year-old underwent surgery in May after suffering the injury in Round 1 of the playoffs against Florida. Assuming he comes back in December, Wilson will miss a minimum of 24 regular-season contests while he recovers, so those relying on his fantasy services (and especially his physicality after last season's 240-hit showing) will need to alter their plans accordingly.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Undergoes ACL surgery

    Wilson has undergone successful surgery on his left knee to reconstruct his torn ACL and is expected to be sidelined for 6-8 months.

    Even if Wilson is able to make a full recovery in six months, he'll still miss approximately eight weeks of regular-season action in 2022-23, so fantasy managers will need to take that into account when considering the 28-year-old bruiser on draft day. Wilson racked up 24 goals, 52 points and 240 hits through 78 regular-season contests in 2021-22.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Could need surgery

    Wilson suffered a "significant" knee injury in Game 1 against Florida and still doesn't know if he needs surgery during the offseason to repair the damage, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    The 28-year-old only played 1:31 during the six-game series, missing the final five games -- with what has now been clarified as a knee injury. It sounds like Wilson has plenty of rehab work and potential surgery ahead of him this summer, but there's been nothing to suggest at this time that he won't be ready to return for training camp in September. Wilson's 24 goals, 28 assists, 52 points, plus-13 rating, 18:35 of average ice time and 10 power-play points this season were all new personal bests.
