Washington Capitals rookie forward Tom Wilson doesn’t play a whole lot. He’s buried on the fourth line with Aaron Volpatti and Jay Beagle, despite possession stats that suggest he’s ready for moar. But that limited ice time hasn’t made Wilson an afterthought here at RMNB. Au contraire.
He had that triple check against Columbus; this big hit and that big hit and also this big hit, he made those sketch cards, he scored his first NHL point while sliding on his bootay, and oh yeah, he beat the tar out of me at NHL14.
My favorite Tom Wilson story has to be his fight with Brayden Schenn. Geoff Burke’s pics of Willy Baby were terrific and made him look like the warrior he is.
Today is the opposite of that. Today I present Kevin Hoffman’s photos of Wilson playing the Buffalo Sabres last week.

That’s a face only a mama could love. And also RMNB readers.
