Tom Wilson absolutely destroys Sharks player with massive hit, fans are calling it ‘vintage hockey’

Tom Wilson just loves playing the San Jose Sharks.

Earlier this season, in a game between the Capitals and Sharks in October, Wilson reached a huge personal milestone, scoring two goals, including the game winner. It marked Wilson’s 300th career NHL point.

However, the forward isn’t most known for his goal-scoring or playmaking. Wilson is a physical player who loves the physical game.

Widely acknowledged as one of the biggest hitters in the NHL, he once again proved it with a massive hit on Calen Addison in Monday’s game against the Sharks.

Addison, a 23-year-old defenseman acquired from the Minnesota Wild earlier this season, was in possession of the puck just behind his own net.

Just as he passed the puck to a teammate, he was absolutely bulldozed by the train that is Tom Wilson.

Wilson approached the situation with full speed and sent Addison flying in a game where big hits were thrown one after another. No hit was bigger than the one Wilson delivered, and Addison had trouble getting up after the bone-crushing hit.

Although the Sharks eventually secured the win, scoring 2 goals and conceding 1, fans praised Wilson for the massive collision.

“What a massive hit by Wilson,” one said.

“Tom Wilson is literally a moving train, Jesus Christ,” another said.

“Vintage. Love to see it,” a third added.

But some also slammed Wilson for jumping while hitting Addison, which would mean he should’ve been called for charging.

“This is new. When did Tom Wilson turn into a dirty player?” One said.

“I’d love Tom Wilson on my team, but that’s charging. If you jump, it’s considered charging,” another said.

“Dirty hit. Practically a charge,” a third added.
