Video- Tom Wilson Hit On Nikita Zadorov

via Terry Frei of the Denver Post,

The Avalanche was down to five defensemen after Nikita Zadorov took a high hit from the Capitals' Tom Wilson to Varlamov's left and, with trainer Matt Sokolowski attending to him, stayed down for a minute or two. He then came to the bench and straight to the dressing room, and was done for the night. The Avalanche said he suffered a head injury.

Someone did yell heads up...

Capitals replay, felt incriminating how long it took them to come up with the replay and no slow motion. Straight off the bench, doesnt even make an attempt at the puck?

This one is tough, even if the hit itself is clean.

Could you explain that a bit more?

The hit itself could be clean as far as not making head contact, not leaving his feet etc., but he came off the bench, went straight for the player (albeit with the puck) to deliver said hit. If he had done the same thing to initiate a fight, he’d be penalized.
