“Bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep!” (Photos by Chris Gordon)

On Monday afternoon, the Washington Capitals and the Philadelphia Flyers played a rookie game at Kettler Capitals Iceplex featuring prospects from both teams. It was a rather meaningless game, but still a chance for players on both sides to impress their management — or at least get a deal in the WWE. In the 60 minute game, there were four fights, a myriad of scrums and penalties, along with a occasional slew foot. Naturally, a lot of this involved Tom Wilson. The 2012 first-round pick got in two fights, lost half a tooth, and said some very, very naughty things to players on the other team.

Despite my perch between the benches, I couldn’t really tell how both his fights started, so I’ll let Wilson explain.

“I figured why not?” he said of the first bout. “Two good fights — that’s part of the game.”

Below, here are photos and video of T-Wil’s brawls.

    Phones should self destruct if people try to video vertically. Maybe it would help stop this horrible epidemic.

    That kid might help me forget about Hendricks having to leave. Even if he only plays 8 games. Love his energy.

    Looks like No. 43 is just 2 moves away from starring as No. 45, Arron Asham. Good! Tom Wilson has my vote. We need a wolverine on our team! Let Wilson do the checking so Russian Machine can have more time to do what he loves best, “Score more goals!”
