Tom Wilson is a renowned power-forward in the league, known for his toughness and unique style of play.

However, there is an interesting story behind his fight with retired NHL player Mark Borowiecki.

After Wilson had just taken down Ryan Johansen, he was expected to engage in a fight as per the code.

However, Wilson had recently recovered from a concussion, and Borowiecki, who had previously lost fights to Wilson, had built up his reputation as one of the league's toughest players.


To make the fight more agreeable for both parties, they decided to stage it. They agreed to tie each other up and throw some missed punches, which may have disappointed the fans on hockeyfights.com.

The truth is often more surprising than fiction, and even Wilson, like Ryan Reaves, is not infallible.
