The Washington Capitals announced today that Tom Wilson underwent successful reconstruction surgery on his left knee to repair a torn ACL.

He is expected to miss 6-8 months, which means he will miss the beginning of the 2022-2023 season.

Wilson is coming off an incredible season, scoring 52 points in 78 games with 24 goals and 28 assists, all career-highs. He was injured on May 3 in Game 1 of the Capitals’ Round 1 series against the Florida Panthers and did not return for the rest of the series, despite his best efforts.
