Caps' Wilson Fights, Gets Two Helpers Saturday

News: Tom Wilson captured two assists and spent five minutes in the penalty box in Saturday's win over the Lightning.
Analysis: Tom Wilson has accrued an assist in three of his last four games, which looks to be enough to justify his stay on the top line with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom until further notice. His willingness to drop the gloves while remaining active offensively probably makes him deserving of wider ownership in fantasy leagues.

Caps' Wilson Captures Assist In Win

News: Tom Wilson picked up an assist and spent four minutes in the penalty box in Tuesday's game against the Lightning.
Analysis: Tom Wilson is still skating for the Capitals in a top-line role, but with under 14 minutes of ice time in each of the last three games, coach Barry Trotz might be leaning toward reconsidering that deployment. Though he has assists in consecutive games, Wilson hasn't been scoring with much frequency of late. He's at least made up for it by averaging 3.24 PIM per game, tops among players who have suited up for at least 15 games.

Caps' Wilson Suits Up Saturday

News: Tom Wilson (lower body) saw 15:16 of ice time in Saturday's loss to the Blues.
Analysis: After missing the Caps' previous two games, Tom Wilson entered the contest as a game-time decision, but ended up seeing a relatively normal amount of ice time. Though he didn't record any points and finished with a minus-2 rating on the evening, he did produce seven penalty minutes and six hits to give some value to those who own him in specialty formats.

Caps' Wilson A Game-Time Call Saturday

News: Tom Wilson will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Blues.
Analysis: Tom Wilson will participate in pregame warmups before the team decides whether or not he'll suit up in the contest. He's missed the previous two games with the lower-body injury.

Caps' Wilson Won't Play Friday

News: Coach Barry Trotz said that Tom Wilson (lower body) has been ruled out from playing Friday against the Devils, but remains a possible option for Saturday's game against the Blues, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Trotz indicated that while Tom Wilson is recovering well from the injury, he didn't feel comfortable with using the forward in back-to-back games. Though he'll miss his third straight game, there's a good chance he'll slot back in on the Caps' top line Saturday if he can make it through the morning skate without incident.

Caps' Wilson May Return Friday

News: Coach Barry Trotz upgraded Tom Wilson to questionable for Friday's game against the Devils, but the forward is still considered more likely to make his return to the lineup Saturday versus the Blues, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: The Capitals seemed to initially rule Tom Wilson out entirely for Friday after he was limited to skating on his own the last few days, but his participation in practice in a non-contact capacity Thursday morning seems to have improved his outlook. Wilson acknowledged that while he was closing in on 100 percent health, it still seems more likely that the Capitals will hold him out to Saturday, just so he's not overextending himself by playing back-to-back nights right away coming off the injury.

Caps' Wilson Targeting Saturday Return

News: Tom Wilson (lower body) is hoping to return to the lineup Saturday against the Blues, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Tom Wilson was able to skate for the second straight day, but his lack of participation during practice will probably preclude him from playing in the final game of the Caps' homestand Friday against the Devils. Instead, he'll travel with the team for its three-game road trip, and could be available as soon as Saturday night if he's able to skate earlier that day without any setbacks.

Caps' Wilson Not Practicing Wednesday

News: Tom Wilson (lower body) didn't practice Wednesday, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Both Tom Wilson and fellow injured forward Brooks Laich were able to take to the ice for Tuesday's morning skate, but the absence of both from practice Wednesday would seem to suggest neither has been cleared for contact just yet. The Capitals won't play their next game until Friday against the Devils, giving Wilson another day to potentially practice and state his case for a return to game action.

Caps' Wilson Ruled Out Tuesday

News: Tom Wilson (lower body) will not play Tuesday against the Blue Jackets, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Tom Wilson was on the ice for morning skate Tuesday, but was limited to non-contact work and didn't skate on a regular line. On a more fortunate note, coach Barry Trotz did seem optimistic that Wilson would be a lineup option on Friday against the Devils if he remains on schedule with his recovery from the injury.

Caps' Wilson Misses Practice

News: Tom Wilson (lower body) did not participate in Monday's practice, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Tom Wilson left Saturday's game after pulling up on the forecheck, and is still feeling sore. Consider him a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with the Blue Jackets until we hear more.

Caps' Wilson Exits Saturday's Game

News: Tom Wilson left the ice with an apparent injury early in the second period with an apparent injury, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports.
Analysis: Tom Wilson pulled up grimacing while back-checking early in the second period and went straight to the locker room. Having been recently been promoted to the team's top line with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, Wilson was emerging as a sleeper across all fantasy formats with two goals and an assist in his last three games.

Caps' Wilson Promoted To Top Line

News: Tom Wilson skated with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on the top line during Tuesday's practice, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Tom Wilson found his way onto the line during Washington's 6-3 loss to Arizona on Sunday night and recorded two points. Head coach Barry Trotz appears to be inclined to keep that trio together as the Capitals look to snap a four-game losing streak against the Flames on Tuesday. Needless to say, should the former Plymouth Whaler stick with such offensively gifted linemates, his fantasy value would skyrocket. Wilson may be worth a speculative add at this point, as the situation warrants close monitoring.

Caps' Wilson Picks Up Two Points

News: Tom Wilson added a goal and an assist in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Coyotes.
Analysis: Tom Wilson recorded his first points of the season in his third game since being recalled from the AHL. He may continue to see a decent amount of ice time, as he logged over 15 minutes on Sunday, but he likely won't tally too many points.

Caps' Wilson Back In The Fold

News: Tom Wilson (ankle) has been recalled from Hershey.
Analysis: He'll replace Chris Brown on the Caps' roster and make his season debut Wednesday against the Red Wings. Tom Wilson figures to fill a depth role in Washington again this season, likely shuffling around in the team's bottom-six forward ranks.

Caps' Wilson Eyeing Oct. 29 Return

News: Coach Barry Trotz acknowledged Tuesday that Tom Wilson (ankle) could return to the Washington lineup Oct. 29 against the Red Wings, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Tom Wilson, who was sent out on a rehab assignment at AHL Hershey on Monday, will play in two minor league games over the weekend, logging top-six minutes in each tilt. If his ankle holds up fine, Wilson will rejoin the Capitals for practice on Monday, when the team returns from its three-game road trip through western Canada. Trotz will then have to decide if he wants to slot Wilson back into his bottom-six, most likely at the expense of Liam O'Brien or Chris Brown.

Caps Reassign Wilson

News: The Capitals reassigned Tom Wilson (ankle) to AHL Hershey on Monday.
Analysis: Tom Wilson has been on IR with an ankle injury, and will likely use the stint in Hershey to get back up to speed. Expect him to be called back up to the big club when he's healthy.

Caps' Wilson (Leg) Could Return Next Week

News: Capitals head coach Barry Trotz indicated there was an "outside chance" that Tom Wilson (ankle) would return to action during the team's upcoming three-game road trip in Western Canada, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Tom Wilson (ankle) has yet to play this season as he rehabs from surgery to repair a broken leg sustained during the offseason. Although Wilson might "catch the tail end" of the trip, he is also just as likely to be sent to AHL Hershey for a conditioning assignment, so he's still a risk to add in single-season leagues at this time, although the time for his season debut appears to be drawing closer.

Caps' Wilson Won't Return Next Week

News: Coach Barry Trotz said that Tom Wilson (leg) will not return to action for at least two more games, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Tom Wilson resumed practicing earlier this week, but it still sounds like he's a little behind the rest of his mates in terms of conditioning work. Look for the Capitals to send him to AHL Hershey for a rehab assignment before activating him from injured reserve.

Caps' Wilson Practices Tuesday

News: Tom Wilson (leg), who was officially placed on injured reserve, was able to practice Tuesday, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Tom Wilson appears to be trending toward the finishing line in his recovery from a broken fibula, but it seems likely he'll have to begin his campaign at AHL Hershey, either for rehab action or as a straight-up assignment. The young winger was in the lineup for all 82 games last season but didn't make much of an impact while averaging less than eight minutes per night.

Capitals' Wilson Could Be Out Until November

News: Tom Wilson (leg) may not be ready to play until November, Mike Vogel of the Capitals' website reports.
Analysis: Tom Wilson may plan an expanded role for the Capitals at some point this season, but he has not recovered from offseason surgery as quickly as hoped, and it remains to be seen when he will be able to take the ice next.

Caps' Wilson To Start Season On IR

News: The Capitals will place Tom Wilson (leg) on injured reserve for the start of the season, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Tom Wilson hasn't practiced with the team during training camp as he recovers from offseason surgery to repair a broken leg. The power forward is in line for a bigger role than the fourth-line pugilist he played last season, so keep an eye on him once he gets back into the lineup as he may have some upside in deeper leagues once he gets healthy and acclimated to the new system.

Caps' Wilson Out For Season Opener

News: Tom Wilson (fractured fibula) is not expected to be available for the Capitals' season opener, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Tom Wilson hasn't practiced with the Capitals during training camp and could be a candidate for short-term injured reserve, if he fails to make significant progress in the final week leading up to the start of the regular season. Coach Barry Trotz hinted that Wilson could be out until mid-October, but the Capitals haven't committed to an official timetable just yet.

Open Timeframe On Caps' Wilson

News: Head coach Barry Trotz is hopeful Tom Wilson (leg) will return to the lineup around the start of the season, but no firm timeline has been established, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Tom Wilson underwent surgery to repair a broken fibula, sustained during a fall in June, and is apparently progressing well. With Alex Ovechkin poised to play more at left wing and the new coaching staff desiring a greater role for Wilson than the fourth-line pugilist duties he had last season, the door is open for Wilson to gain more quality ice time if he can return to the lineup in a timely manner. Keep an eye on his progress, as the power forward could have decent sleeper upside in deeper leagues this season.
