Caps forward Tom Wilson returned to D.C. on Wednesday, chatting and signing autographs with fans who came to Verizon Center to buy season tickets, enjoy free refreshments and talk hockey.

“They needed a player to come out, so I offered to come down to see some people,” said Wilson, who flew in from his home in Toronto for the day.

Fans lined up to get autographs from the 20-year-old, still one of the youngest players on the team heading into his sophomore season. One fan brought a photo for Wilson to sign of him  knocking down three Columbus players at the same time during a game in October.

Wilson has been spending his summer working out five days a week, while taking the weekends off from training to enjoy the weather. He doesn’t have any major vacation plans, other than to enjoy time at his cottage, which is a couple of hours outside of Toronto. Word from the Caps is that Wilson shot a commercial while in town. Apparently, it involves him walking around a Verizon Center suite with his gloves and a stick.
