Although he's a great scorer and a very good hockey player, Washington Capitals right wing Tom Wilson is used to making headlines for the wrong reasons, because of the many vicious hits he makes every season.

However, this same Wilson just proved that he may not be the same pest off the ice as he is on it. No one was untouched by the racist gestures made by a Jacksonville Iceman player towards Jordan Subban in the ECHL on Saturday.

Not even Wilson, who came to Subban's defense via his Twitter account, condemning the gestures that Subban was the victim of.

Wilson, one of the most hated players in the National Hockey League, may have succeeded in restoring his reputation among fans by speaking out against one of the biggest scourges in sports and in society in general.

This is a great proof that despite the animosity that animates them on the ice, hockey players are above all a family and it is the whole hockey world that is affected when such an event occurs.
