Tom Wilson Looking Forward to Making Life Hard for Star Acquisition of Rival Team
BY TJ TUCKER AUGUST 17, 2023 (9:03 PM)
Wilson recently appeared on TSN 1050 where he was asked about the Caps' biggest NHL rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins, and their recent blockbuster trade to bring in Norris Trophy-winning defenceman Erik Karlsson. Wilson gave Karlsson credit as an elite player, but added he's a rival now.
Wilson and Karlsson will get to know each other better as rivals almost instantly, as the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins will meet on October 13th, the NHL's first night of the new season. The Caps and Pens rivalry was established earlier, but really heated up when Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin arrived in the NHL. Wilson said it's still there.
Wilson recently signed a new seven-year deal with the Capitals worth $45.5 million.
WILL BOTH THE CAPS AND PENS MAKE THE PLAYOFFS IN 2023-24?
