No Suspension for Wilson

Recommended Posts

Wow awful.  I guess because there was no contact with the head and Schenn didnt turn to toward the board till the last second?  What was the reasoning by Shanahan?

TSN:
 

Shanahan said Wilson was not punished for boarding because Schenn began to turn his back to try to avoid contact after looking back at the Washington winger. It was the NHL department of player safety's determination that Schenn turning "actually contributes to making this hit worse."

In looking at the charging aspect of the hit, Shanahan went into a lengthy explanation of how teams forecheck. Even though Wilson skated directly from the bench to hit Schenn, Shanahan said most of that distance was travelled in "typical forechecking fashion."

As for the hit itself, Shanahan said it was shoulder to shoulder, crediting Wilson for staying low throughout the course of delivering it.
