Tom Wilson (lower body) returned to action on Saturday.
Wilson returned after missing a couple of games and managed seven penalty minutes in the 4-1 loss to St. Louis as he took on the Blues enforcer Ryan Reaves for a five minute major and took a coincidental minor with David Backes in the third. Wilson has a goal and two assists in six games thus far with 11 penalty minutes and a minus-two rating in the early going. If he is on the waiver wire, he is a nice pickup in traditional deep pools.

Tom Wilson played his first game of the season for the Hershey Bears of the AHL Friday.

Wilson suffered a broken ankle in a freak off-season accident and the Capitals sent him down earlier in the week to get in some playing time. "I felt great in the first and the legs wore down a little bit there in the second and the third," Wilson told the Harrisburg Patriot-News. "I played a lot and it was a hard game, a high-paced game.... Obviously, it was my first game back in a while and my legs started to go a little bit more than I'd like, but that's just part of the experience. [Saturday] I'll get back to work and, hopefully, those legs get there soon." Wilson is expected to sit out tonight's game and then play Sunday. If all works out, he will return to the Capitals on Tuesday. He is worth picking up if you need penalty minutes as he should get 100-125 the rest of the way.

Oct 5 - 11:27 AM

Tom Wilson (ankle) is skating on his own at training camp.

Wilson injured his ankle in a freak accident according to him. "Ankles are tough," he said. "There are a lot of things that need to come along so it's kind of day-by-day and week-to-week and seeing how I feel. If I'm not feeling 100 percent, there's no point in rushing it. It's a long season so I'm going to reevaluate every day and continue to push myself and hopefully I'm back as soon as possible to help the team. I'm a competitive kid, I like to work hard and push myself and sometimes you have to hold back a little bit. There's no point in coming back five days early if it's going to cost you three or four weeks down the road." Wilson should get 150-plus minutes and 10-15 points in 2014-15.
