Capitals’ Tom Wilson: “It’s Important to Stay Healthy and Stay Safe…Hopefully, We’ll Be Back Sooner Rather Than Later.”


Monday afternoon, Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson had a message for fans regarding the NHL’s pause due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Halle, his puppy, also appeared in the video.

We’re thinking of you. I know you guys miss hockey right now, so do we. It’s just a tough time and it’s important to stay healthy and stay safe and take care of your loved ones and hopefully, we’ll be back sooner rather than later. All the best and see you guys around.

Halle is an 8-week old black lab mix, who Tom and his girlfriend, Taylor Pischke adopted from Wolf Trap Animal Rescue. According to Taylor, her “favorite things are pine cones and digging holes.”
