tom_wilso Nice night for a game of corn hole 🌽🕳 #byebyehair

He and his boyfriend were forced to breakup, so now it’s time for the mandated post-breakup hair change.

With comments from the peanut gallery, and an ex who just can’t say goodbye:

Other fun bits from tonight’s warmups:

Shortly after Wilson and Latta’s usual tussle in the corner, Stan Galiev came over and gave Michael Latta the most cautious jostle in the world. It was the most timid horseplay ever. It basically screamed, I have been warned by the parental units about you two weirdos.

Andre Burakovsky skated up and snowed Tom Wilson while they were waiting their turn for one-timers practice. Then he fell over like a baby deer. Wilson laughed at him.

I think Grubi of all people was chatting with Hammond near center ice while they were stretching. Guessing they remember each other from the AHL?

Justin Williams managed not to fall on Braden Holtby again. And there was much rejoicing.

(Minus Philipp Grubauer who does not have a draft photo. Here is a picture of him looking stoic and German about this egregious oversight.)
