So, Wilson does appear to jump into to Thomas, but if he doesn’t, does Thomas’ skate come up and slice him in the face?

I think its clean other than the NHL wants to see Wilson make a play on the puck instead of ignoring it completely to make the hit.

Honest question: is it likely that the issue here is the hit being late? I can’t quite see when Wilson commits to the hit vs. when Thomas ceases to have possession.

I believe that will be the topic.  DoPS says interference so IMO they are looking at it as a late hit, not the hit itself.

I can’t see the video right now but my guess is dops suspends him a minimum of 5 games to “send a message”.

Threw a couple extra punches at a guy who was already way off-balance
and on his way down, too.
