According to a Caps spokesperson, Washington right wing Tom Wilson suffered an ankle injury in Ontario during a fall. Doctors in Toronto are currently evaluating him. The Capitals’ medical staff has been in touch with Wilson and the doctors. The team will know more about the extent of his injury in the next couple of days.
It wasn’t reported how, exactly, Wilson suffered the ankle injury, but his agent denies that it was related to a skateboarding accident:
Tom Wilson's agent said Wilson didn't fall of a skateboard (which I think has been posited?), but didn't know exactly how it happened.
When it comes to point streaks for U.S.-born NHL players, Patrick Kane now stands alone.
With a power-play goal early in Saturday’s Blackhawks – Kings game, Kane extended his streak to 19 games, breaking a tie with Phil Kessel and Eddie Olczyk (who finished with at least a point in 18 straight).
As of this writing, Kane has 11 goals and 19 assists during this 19-game streak. He also leads the NHL in scoring.
Bobby Hull’s 21-game point streak stands as the Chicago Blackhawks’ overall team record, by the way.
Kane also tied Denis Savard (1985-86) for second-longest streak in Chicago history. Bobby Hull had a 21-game streak.
