Another suspension looming for Caps F Tom Wilson

Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson has been offered an in-person hearing for high-sticking Toronto Maple Leafs forward Noah Gregor on Wednesday night.

The date and time have not been determined for the hearing, which indicates a potential suspension of six games or more for the repeat offender.

Wilson, who turns 30 next week, has been suspended five times during his 11-year career with the Capitals, most recently in March 2021.

The latest incident occurred at 12:15 of the third period in Washington’s 7-3 loss on home ice. Wilson received a double-minor penalty for swinging his stick and hitting Gregor in the face.

Wilson has recorded 32 points (17 goals, 15 assists) and 120 penalty minutes in 66 games this season. He has 327 points (145 goals, 182 assists) and 1,419 PIM in 746 games since the Capitals drafted him in the first round in 2012.

A potential lengthy absence for the two-time All-Star comes at a precarious time for the Capitals (33-26-9), who entered Thursday one point behind the Detroit Red Wings for the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference with 14 games to play.
