Completely reckless… and should get him an in-player hearing.

Ken Campbell tweets,

Spoke with Tom Wilson in July for THN story and I really wanted to believe he could change. “I’m trying to learn the hits that are acceptable and the ones that aren’t,” he said. “I don’t want to hurt anybody.” Today’s hit suggests he was either snowing me or he’s a slow learner.

If DOPS chooses to suspend Tom Wilson for this latest hit, it could and should be a long one. He’s a big time repeat offender at this point.

Gulitti tweet,

Blues coach Mike Yeo said Oskar Sundqvist is “not good” after being injured on hit from Tom Wilson. Hasn’t seen team doctor yet, so no official diagnosis, but Yeo said he has “a couple of upper-body injuries” and expects him to be out a while.

Also, Tom Wilson was not made available to the media after the game.

Solid hockey play. Scott Stevens special- you don’t cross the middle admiring your play- hockey 101.  And he hit his upper body not targeting the head.

Glad he’s getting an in person hearing.  Means he’s getting 5+ games.
This is precisely the hit they need to eliminate from the game.
Just make the rule the same as high sticking. If the head is contacted, auto 5-min and a game. Then the DoPS will review for further analysis.

Not a Tom Wilson fan whatsoever, but it looked like hockey to me.

Looked like shoulder to shoulder with the shooter not ready for contact because he didn’t see Wilson cutting across. No elbows no head contact. Whats left if this is a suspension? No contact?  Wilson gets 5, 10 and a game every time he checks someone? 

I get the outrage if he hit a Wing like that I would be mad too. But where does it become the skaters fault too for having his head down and setting himself up for a hit like that?

DOH! I just saw a different view of it and he did get him in the head. Disregard what I wrote above.

Would love to see some other views of this, but from what’s posted it looked like a shoulder on shoulder.

I would like to see him lower his shoulder 6 inches. Just 6 inches.. It has the same effect and can’t make contact with the other guys head.

Two problems with this hit: first, he speeds up across half the ice for a hit, these cameras show only his last step, but it seems to me it is definitely charging. Also, all the time he is coming from blind side, which is, I believe, now strongly forbidden.
