There will be an Element of Business for Tom Wilson This Summer


Tom Wilson will enter the summer as a restricted free agent coming off his best season on the Capitals where he scored 14 goals and 21 assists for 35 points. He also made a smooth transition from the bottom-six to the top-six, spending a chunk of the regular season and all of the postseason on the first-line with Alex Ovehckin and Evgeny Kuznetsov. 

In his final media scrum, Wilson talked about how former Capital Justin Williams encouraged the team to have fun and said that it helped loosen them up and bond together more.

Wilson also mentioned that he saw a difference in his game from one or two times he was paired with Ovechkin and Kuznetsov.

Wilson has become a favorite among fans and has enjoyed his last five years in D.C. He said that this summer will be an element of business for him.

About Michael Marzzacco

Michael is an avid DC sports fan with a passion for writing. He has followed the Washington Capitals since the 2003-04 season, around the time his enthusiasm for DC teams really began. It was from the days when they had the worst record in the league to when they became the most exciting team in the area. His Dad took him to his first Caps game a couple of years later. One of his favorite memories was being in the stands during the 2015 Winter Classic where Troy Brouwer scored the game-winning goal with 12 seconds left. Michael graduated from Radford University in May 2016, earning a degree in journalism and focusing on sports journalism and broadcasting. His goal is to work in sports media in Washington, D.C.
