BREAKING: Todd Reirden thinks Tom Wilson may no longer be a '10' after high stick to face

Women all over the D.C area have just one question: Is Tom Wilson's face ok?!

Wilson took a high stick to the face late in the second period of Wednesday's game against the Bruins and left the ice a bloody mess.

“He did get a high stick in the face, I don’t know how they didn’t call it, he fought a mountain of a man in Chara, so he was all-in last night, paying the price in different areas," head coach Todd Reirden said on The Sports Junkies Thursday.

Poor Wilson.

“As I joked with him when he had his mustache, I said for about the end of November, I’m like, ‘Yeah, it’s tough to be down to a 9.5 now, huh? Instead of a 10?’” Reirden said.

(We beg to differ, Reirden)

But have no fear, Caps fans. Reirden thinks Wilson will be back to a perfect-10 in no time.

“This morning, he’s probably kicking around, between a 9 and a 9.5, but I’m confident he’ll be back to his normal 10-self in the next day or so here," Reirden said.

Alex Ovechkin named to NHL's All-Decade first team for 2010-19

Alex Ovechkin named to NHL's All-Decade first team for 2010-19

Alex Ovechkin once again was named to one of the NHL's All-Decade teams.

This go-around, Ovechkin was named to the first-team for the All-Decade Team spanning 2010-2019. 

During those 10 seasons, there was no one that totaled more than Ovi's 437 goals. Only two others had more than his 730 points.

Through our eyes, we saw him mature from a unique superstar to a once-in-a-generation athlete. Ovechkin won his first Stanley Cup in the decade after years of heartbreak and dominant Capitals teams that could never escape the second round. 

Now, he's a mere eight goals away from reaching 700 and further etching his name in the fabric of the sport. 

He is joined with fellow forward Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith of the Blackhawks. Sidney Crosby of the Penguins, Drew Doughty of the Kings and Marc-Andre Fleury of the Golden Knights rounded out the six-player first team. 

NHL ALL-DECADE FIRST TEAM

Alex Ovechkin - F - Capitals
Patrick Kane - F - Blackhawks
Sidney Crosby - C - Penguins
Duncan Keith - D - Blackhawks
Drew Doughty - D - Kings
Marc-Andre Fleury - G- Golden Knights

NHL ALL-DECADE SECOND TEAM

Evgeni Malkin - F - Penguins
Patrice Bergeron - F - Bruins
Steven Stamkos - F - Lightning
Erik Karlsson - D - Sharks
Zdeno Chara - D - Bruins
Henrik Lundqvist - G - Rangers

The Great 8 was also named to the All-Decade team in 2000-10. Only Zdeno Chara and Sidney Crosby, named to the second team for the last decade, received the recognition last decade as well.
