Washington Capitals 2012 first round pick Tom Wilson has made the team’s opening night roster. Wilson was perhaps the most talked-about story at training camp, and George McPhee has traded a proven NHL commodity, Mathieu Perreault, to allow cap space for Wilson.
Wilson had made RMNB headlines throughout camp: his two fights in the rookie game, his big hit against Jets, and his goals against the Bruins and Flyers. But it was his fight with Philadelphia Flyers pugilist Brayden Schenn that was the most memorable.
Geoff Burke of USA Today Sports took some incredible photos of that bout. Embiggen the pics and check them out.
Adam Oates was right: he’s a man child. Don’t make him angry.
