Skating in just the second NHL game of his career, Tom Wilson immediately saw his role on the team expanded. Wilson got a lot more ice time and more of the same with: big hits and strong skating.
For the most part, at least. Wilson lost a skate blade after a collision with Ryan McDonagh and had to hobble his hulking frame back to the bench like a goofball.
The blade falls off, see bottom right corner of the screen. (GIF by welshhockeyfan)

the only thing that made me smile today.
That was very funny, never saw it before thanks Tom your awesome. No pp’s I’ve also rarely seen after giving the opposition a 5-3 over a minute. 5 penalty kills no power plays= BS. straight BS. We’ll take them out at home.
initially didn’t realize it was the lost blade and was worried he’d gotten hurt… once it became clear what the issue was, and he was laughing on the bench, i had to rewind the dvr and watch it a few times. SO. FUNNY. seriously though, how great is it watching him throw his weight around? love this kid!
We bring him all the way up to The Show, but we can’t even give the kid gear that’s not busted? Just glad it was the skate and not an injury.
This stuff happens more than you think. Hell, my last game the rivets completely popped out and the entire bladeholder fell off, i just had the boot.
On a real note, give this kid a season in Hershey to develop a bit and he will be ready for the NHL. He has JVR’s size and can hit… as you can see on the McDonut hit.
