Tom Wilson’s Hand Was Cut Open In Fight With Beaulieu

Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson offered a glimpse at his hand following a fight with Nathan Beaulieu in the team’s 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks.



Tom Wilson not only struck twice and had the overtime winner for the Washington Capitals over the Anaheim Ducks, but he also dropped the gloves with Nathan Beaulieu to spark his team. And afterward, he showed off some battle scars.

Wilson got some good punches in but he caught Beaulieu in the helmet and visor, which cut his hand open. The 28-year-old shook his hand out and went down the tunnel for repairs and a look at his bloodied knuckles. Beaulieu was also left with a cut on his nose following the scrap. Wilson returned shortly after before ending things in OT.

In his postgame interview, Wilson showed off the damage to his hand, which featured some gruesome-looking cuts.

Still, Wilson was able to come in clutch with two tallies and seven shots for his team, who felt the aftereffects of several trades made over the last 24 hours and was shorthanded during the game with Nick Jensen and Martin Fehervary both suffering injuries.

Through 13 games this season, Wilson has five goals and two assists, including goals in four of his last six games. The 6-4, 220-pound winger has picked up right where he left off since coming back from offseason ACL surgery and another lower-body injury sustained in late January.
