Tom Wilson hangs out with fans after first NHL game

Because you only get one NHL debut, let’s keep writing about Tom Wilson’s NHL debut for another day.

Remember, some random good-hearted stranger bought Wilson’s father a Caps jersey personalized with his son’s info during his debut on Friday night. And after the game, where did the 19-year old head? How about to spend some time posing for photos with fans at the Green Turtle next door.


And look, Steve Oleksy — who had gone to Redline after the Game 1 victory — was there too.

If you learn nothing else from this item, let it be this: Steve Oleksy doesn’t like to travel too far for food after home playoff games. And also, Tom Wilson is a heckuva lot taller than Oleksy.
