Tom Wilson has been selected by the Washington Capitals with the 16th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
Perhaps the draft's most intimidating force, Wilson is a true power forward who uses his elite size to bother opponents. He is a tough kid and a natural leader. However, injuries have haunted his development and he has yet to play a full season in the OHL. Wilson has offensive upside as his strength and size allow him to drive the net at will. However, he lacks the ability to create his own chances because he doesn't possess great puck skills. Moreover, he's an average skater and doesn't excel on the defensive end. It will probably be at least a couple years before we'll know if he'll have any fantasy value with the Capitals.
