Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson left during the third period of Friday’s home opener against the Buffalo Sabres with an apparent lower-body injury. According to the team, he will not return for the remainder of the game and will be re-evaluated on Saturday.

NHL.com’s Tom Gulitti said Wilson talked with trainer Jason Serbus after a shift. He went to the locker room afterward.

Capitals bench boss Peter Laviolette was asked about the status of Wilson after the game.

More to come.
