VIDEO: Caps rookie Tom Wilson loses skate blade, struggles to bench
Capitals rookie Tom WIlson lost his skate behind the net on a check, and then hilarity ensued as he tried to get back to the bench.
The rookie, playing just the second game of his NHL career, came flying in for a check along the end boards. That was fine; it worked well. But on the check his skate hit the boards, and his blade went flying off. From there it was a long, stumbling trek back to the bench. Jason Chimera helped out with a big push for Wilson while simultaneously trying to stay in the play.
It was almost as if his team played a prank on the kid in his first NHL road game, but not quite. Just bad luck that led to a rather hilarious journey back to the bench. All that was missing was the Benny Hill soundtrack.
Mike Rupp can relate to the embarrassment.
