NEW YORK (March 27, 2015) – Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson has been fined $2,000 as supplementary discipline under NHL Rule 64 (Diving/Embellishment), the National Hockey League announced today.
Wilson was issued a Warning following an incident flagged by NHL Hockey Operations during NHL Game No. 936 against Toronto on March 1. His second Citation, which triggered the $2,000 fine, was issued for an incident during NHL Game No. 1057 at Minnesota on March 19. Wilson received a minor penalty for embellishment on the play, at 14:45 of the second period.

Brayden Schenn’s night ended more than a period early after a hit threw him head first into the boards.
Washington’s Tom Wilson hit Schenn, who had the puck and turned to the boards, with 4:44 remaining in the second period. Schenn went flying and the crown of his helmet was the first thing to make contact with the boards behind the Flyers’ goalline.
Wilson was given a 5-minute major for boarding, another five minutes for fighting Nick Grossmann and a game misconduct.
Schenn tried to get off the ice under his own power, but fell three different times before trainer Jim McCrossin could get to him and help him off the ice.
Watch the hit below...
Tom Wilson will soon work for llitch Holdings, sources tell Action News. Having resigned last week as president and CEO of the Pistons and their owner, Palace Sports and Entertainment, he now joins the company that owns the Detroit Tigers and Red Wings.
Wilson will be responsible for heading up all the talks surrouding a new stadium for the Detroit Red Wings. The move is right up Wilson’s alley considering he was involved in the building of the Palace in Auburn Hills.
He will report directly to Mike Ilitch. It is not yet known if Ken Holland and Dave Dombrowski will report to Wilson.
A press conference could be held as early as Tuesday.
from the St. Petersburg Times,
Wilson said he still is trying to make sense of the tumult surrounding the now-dead $200-million proposal that included the St. Pete Times Forum lease and 5 1/2 acres of nearby land in Tampa.
He also tried to allay “understandable” fan nervousness about the team’s future.
Wilson said he still has “some degree of optimism” Absolute Hockey Enterprises’ main players can resolve their differences and resurrect the purchase.
If they do not, he said, the team will not be shopped—“we’re not hiring a broker to see who might have interest in the Tampa Bay Lightning”—but offers that “fall out of the sky” will be considered.
