      Capitals' Tom Wilson: Has rare multi-point game in win over Flyers

      Wilson notched his first multi-point game of the season Thursday, dishing two assists (one on the power play) in a win over the Flyers. Sure, they were secondary assists on insurance goals, but hey, they all show up the same on the back of your trading cards. It's well worth noting that despite still-slender ice time (12:07), Wilson got a chance on the man advantage, while his even-strength helper came on a Nicklas Backstrom goal.

      Capitals' Tom Wilson: Being asked to walk "fine line" by Trotz

      Head coach Barry Trotz said he was asking Wilson to be smarter about his game while still remaining "edgy", Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. In the aftermath of Washington's overtime win over Toronto that was a last-second goal away from a loss due in no small part to his untimely penalty, Wilson said he's trying to be more aware of his antics and acknowledged that he had been "on the brink" of taking a penalty for much of the game. "It's tough nowadays to play that way and stay on that brink of penalty or not penalty," Wilson remarked. Still just 21-years-old, Trotz and the Capitals are encouraging the former first-round pick to focus on becoming a more well-rounded player, and although the early returns are not encouraging, the power forward still has time to grow into more than just a fourth-line enforcer. With just two assists in 13 games coupled with less than expected peripheral contributions like hits and penalty minutes, Wilson's value is limited even in deeper leagues until he shows the coach's enough to warrant a larger role in the offense.

    • Gets two assists Sunday

      News: Tom Wilson grabbed two assists during Sunday's 6-2 win over the Islanders.
      Analysis: Tom Wilson also had a minor penalty and two hits. Wilson has had a fine preseason with a goal and three assists in four games. Add in his upside in peripheral stats like hits and penalty minutes, and the 21-year-old has some upside in deeper leagues as he may be emerging as one of the league's more impactful power forwards.
    • Records Assist Monday

      News: Tom Wilson assisted on Andre Burakovsky's power-play goal during Washington's 3-1 win over the Islanders on Monday.
      Analysis: The third-year power-forward also fired three shots on goal and added two hits. Already an imposing physical presence, the third-year winger was challenged to work on his offensive game over the offseason, and the early returns are promising as he has a goal and an assist in two preseason contests. With T.J. Oshie and Justin Williams ahead of him on the depth chart, Tom Wilson will need to continue making an impact on more of the scoresheet than just the penalty minute columns if he is to move up the Washington depth chart, but if his offensive skills continue to grow, he could emerge as a solid multi-category performer in most leagues and has some sleeper potential heading into 2015-2016.
