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.

Per reports, Blais underwent concussion protocol but did return to the game.
