For those of you who are finally getting over Braden Holtby leaving the Capitals, Tom Wilson is here to make you sad again.
Monday, Wilson posted a montage video on Twitter featuring photos of Wilson with Holtby set to Ryan Bingham’s Southside Of Heaven.
“So many memories come to mind when I think back over the last 8 years. From day one at my first training camp, to vacations and a Stanley Cup together. A great teammate and an ever better friend, you will be missed in DC @Holts170.”

Oh man. Is it dusty in here or is it just me?
Brandi Holtby responded to the video by saying “Damnit, Mr. Tom.”
Damnit, Mr. Tom 😢 https://t.co/Hpdsmq8YbJ

The photos reveal that Wilson was the first player to hug Holtby after the Capitals won the Stanley Cup. They both also swam in the fountains together.

Holtby signed a two-year contract to backstop the Vancouver Canucks while the Capitals inked Henrik Lundqvist to a one-year pact, ending Braden’s tenure in Washington. The deal reunites Holtby with former Capitals Jay Beagle and the recently acquired Nate Schmidt.
