Nate Thompson drops the gloves against Tom Wilson for his first fight with Flyers


Well, Nate Thompson is officially a Flyer.

In his fourth game with his new club, Thompson fought Tom Wilson during the first period of the Flyers-Capitals contest Wednesday night at Capital One Arena.

Not a bad way to get Flyers fans on your side. Wilson isn't the most liked player by opposing fan bases.

Thompson got in there and went toe to toe with Wilson. Good for him. The fight was no cheapie, either, as you can watch in the video above.

Wilson delivered a hit on Michael Raffl. Thompson then delivered a hit of his own on Nick Jensen before dropping the gloves.

Thompson, a 35-year-old veteran, was acquired by the Flyers at the NHL trade deadline. He now has his first fight with the Flyers out of the way.

Wilson then fought some more as Robert Hagg defended captain Claude Giroux later in the game.
