Over the course of his career in the National Hockey League, and particularly this season, Capitals right win Tom Wilson has garnered a fair amount of scrutiny and dislike from other fan bases for his playing style. After being blindsided by a hit from Vegas Golden Knights forward Ryan Reaves, fans of other teams have been blatant in their comments on Wilson getting “a taste of his own medicine”. However, Wilson’s brother Peter took to Twitter with a message for all of his brother’s haters.

Peter took to Twitter on Thursday evening in defense of his brother, mentioning his brother’s six-year contract signed this past summer, his Stanley Cup championship, and his outstanding offensive production to all  the “cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat”.

Wilson is missing the Capitals’ game against the Arizona Coyotes with a concussion from the hit by Reaves. which received no supplemental discipline from the league. Wilson has been among the team’s most productive offensive players, recording 14 points in 11 games since returning from a suspension.
