Ovechkin, who pulled the same stunt on rookie defenseman Connor Carrick earlier in the season, walked away shouting “WOOOOO!”
But Wilson hunched over, clutching his face. Wincing in pain, Wilson wiped his eyes, then disappeared into the washroom to clean up. The media, meanwhile, waited patiently to finish questioning the 19-year-old rookie about his first career points.
Wilson re-emerged a few minutes later, the cream wiped from his eyes, and squinted through the rest of the interview.
Word of warning to Nate Schmidt and Michael Latta, who have yet to score in the NHL: Ovi will get you.
