Tom Wilson ejected after ‘predatory hit’ in Capitals’ preseason finale
Tom Wilson, who has already served a two-game suspension this preseason, was ejected from Sunday’s exhibition game against the St. Louis Blues.
Wilson received a major penalty for boarding for a hit on Blues’ forward Sam Blais during the second period, and was also given a game misconduct.
That marks the second incident Wilson has been involved in versus the Blues this preseason. He caught forward Robert Thomas with a late hit on Sept. 22, resulting in the two-game ban.
The Blues certainly aren’t happy with Wilson following these two recent incidents.
Yeo on Wilson hit: "It's a predatory hit with a guy that apparently didn't learn his lesson from the first suspension. Maybe coming down on him a little bit harder will make him think a little bit more about it. It's tough going after vulnerable people." #stlblues— Lou Korac (@lkorac10) October 1, 2017
Per reports, Blais underwent concussion protocol but did return to the game.
