The Washington Capitals were supposed to play the Detroit Red Wings at Capital One Arena on Thursday night. Instead, the players are now grappling with an indefinite stop to their season as the coronavirus continues to spread across North America.
One player perfectly suited for this extended break is new doggy dad Tom Wilson. Wilson and his girlfriend Taylor Pischke recently adopted a rescue pup, Halle.
While Wilson found the pausing of all the major sports leagues “tough news”, he looked forward to spending a lot of time with his new eight-week-old black lab mix.
