June 2013 - Wilson was a (surprising) call-up for the Caps in their opening round playoff series against the Rangers for games 5-7. He was (understandably) used sparingly, receiving six, five, and then nine minutes of ice time but was able to dish out a solid eight hits in the three games. Wilson certainly has a shot at making the Caps this fall, and the call-up no doubt helps his stock, but it won't be a cake walk by any stretch of the imagination. Nathan Kanter

In addition, Wilson added 104 penalty minutes continuing his tough and rugged skilled playing style. Tom Wilson was named the hardest hitter in the Western Conference in the annual OHL Coaches Poll.

February 2013 – Wilson’s game play style kept him from making Team Canada for the WJC as he was a late cut when the staff decided they wanted a responsible team that would attract less penalties for playing a less physical style than Wilson would have provided. In the NHL his style and size will be an asset, not a limiting factor. Wilson was also called up for camp with the Capitals, but was sent back to the OHL a week later. Jason Banks
