Capitals winger Tom Wilson can’t stop passing out questionable hits. During the Caps and Devils game on Friday night he was ejected for a hit on Devils Brett Seney.
The hit was incorrectly ruled a hit to the head. It was a dirty shot by Wilson for sure, but it clipped the back of Seney’s right shoulder not his head.
Seney had to go to the locker room to get some medical attention after the shot.

The NHL agreed that there was no hit to the head by Wilson and he will not have a player safety hearing about this hit.
WSH has been told there will be no @NHLPlayerSafety hearing for Tom Wilson’s hit last night.

Sometimes your dirty hits come back to bite you.
