Washington Capitals

The NHL has suspended Tom Wilson for 20 games.

Wilson has been suspended for 20 games for an illegal check to the head on Blues’ forward Oskar Sundqvist. The league appears to have had enough of Wilson’s antics, suspending him for just under a quarter of the season. With Wilson out, Brett Connolly is going to start on the Capitals first line. Wilson is not eligible to play until November 21st against the Blackhawks.

Wilson will move into the Capitals' top-6 on Friday.

Andre Burakovsky has had a slow start to the season, so Wilson will move up to a line with Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie for tonight’s game in Detroit. This obviously helps Wilson’s fantasy status, but he has yet to record a point one four shots in three games this season. The 23-year-old has a career-high of just seven goals and 23 points.

Wilson (head) returned to practice on Monday.

Wilson missed the final two games of the regular season after being hit in the head by a shot on April 5th vs. the Red Wings. Wilson was reportedly not dealing with concussion-like symptoms and he is skating in a regular jersey this morning, so he could be good-to-go for Game 1 on Wednesday.

Wilson is skating on the Capitals top line this morning.

The second year forward played a season-high 15:04 and scored one goal with one assist against Arizona on Sunday. This morning he is skating with Alex Ovehckin and Nicklas Backstrom, so it looks like he will be taking on a larger offensive role. Head coach Barry Trotz expressed his interest in having this trio together in the preseason and it has materialized.

Wilson will make his season debut tonight.

Wilson was originally listed as a game-time decision, but he will be in the lineup with Eric Fehr coming out of the lineup. He will start on the fourth line, but there was some chatter in the preseason that the Capitals were thinking about having him playing on the top line with Nicklas Backstrom and Alexander Ovechkin, so he might be someone to keep an eye on.

Wilson (ankle) will be a game-time decision tonight.

Wilson, 20, was recently recalled from his conditioning stint with Hershey and rotated in on the Capitals fourth line in the morning skate. Head coach Barry Trotz called him a game-time decision, which likely means he will take warmups and a decision will be made then. If he plays, Eric Fehr will come out.
