Wilson received a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct for the hit. Despite the Capitals saying it was a clean hit, the NHL scheduled a phone hearing for Wilson on Thursday.
The decision has been made by Brendan Shanahan and the Department of Player Safety that Wilson will not face any supplemental discipline.
The video goes into detail as to how the league decided not to add any supplemental discipline and it explains the situation extremely well. While that all makes sense, how can the league sit back and be content with a hit like that? I mean, Schenn escaped serious injury somehow, but nine times out of 10 that hit is going to bring some serious injuries. A misconduct but no fine or suspension - this is the precedent the league is setting with this decision.
In 34 games this season, the 19-year-old rookie has one goal and three assists for the Capitals. The 6'4", 210 lbs. forward was selected with the 16th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
