While Capitals' winger Tom Wilson is enjoying the best season of his seven-year NHL career, his reputation around the league is still a big, physical hockey player who likes to engage in fights.
While Wilson may not like that his fighting ability is what many casual NHL fans first think of when hearing his name, after having no regard for Ian Cole this past Thursday, he can't really blame them.
But those who follow the NHL know how important Wilson's presence on the ice is for the Caps. Through 36 games, Wilson has already tied his career-high in goals with 14, a mark he set a year ago. He's also just 10 points shy of his career-high in points with plenty of the season still to go.
After his strong performance a season ago, including his very solid performance in the playoffs en route to the Stanley Cup, Wilson signed a six-year contract extension with Washington this past offseason.
Now that Wilson knows the Washington, D.C. area will be his home for the forseeable future, the 24-year-old decided to do what many D.C. athletes have done over the past several years -- invest.
So, what did Wilson decide to invest in? You could've guessed it. A boxing gym.
Wilson has become a partner with Bash Boxing, which is a "high-intensity interval training workout studio with plans to grow in the D.C. area and beyond," according to the Washington Business Journal.

Wilson told the Journal that his investment in Bash has nothing to do with his aggressive style of play, rather he enjoys the intense and non-contact workout.
While his role with Bash is still unsure, Wilson's investing in a company that suits him very well.
