Wilson will reportedly not receive supplemental discipline from the NHL for the hit. The 24-year-old only recently finished serving a lengthy suspension (a 20-game sentence that was retroactively reduced to 14 games after Wilson had already missed 16 contests) for a pre-season headshot on Oskar Sundqvist of the St. Louis Blues.
As you can see in the video at the top of the page, Wilson hits Seney after the Devils winger had played the puck and had his back turned. Wilson skates through his opponent with his left shoulder making contact with Seney’s right shoulder.
Seney went down and was assisted off the ice by the Devils training staff before heading straight to the locker room. Seney did return to the Devils bench for the start of the third period.
Wilson, who scored a short-handed goal earlier in the period, has seven goals and six assists in the nine games he’s played since returning from the aforementioned suspension.
