The New York Rangers are extremely disappointed that Capitals forward Tom Wilson was not suspended for his horrific act of violence last night at Madison Square Garden. Wilson is a repeat offender with a long history of this type of act and we find it shocking that the NHL and its player safety department did not take the appropriate action and are suspending him indefinitely. Wilson’s dangerous and reckless actions resulted in an injury to Artemi Panarin this will prevent him from playing again this season. We see this as a dereliction of duty by the NHL Chief Safety Officer, George Parros, and thinks he is unfit to continue in his current role.
Parros has been with DoPS since 2016 and took over as its head in 2017. He has been regularly criticized for his inconsistent approach, but this is the first time a team has publicly called for his dismissal.
Wilson, who was suspended earlier this season for seven games, was fined $ 5,000 for abusing the Rangers forward. Pavel Buchnevich. The league has yet to release any information or decision on the remainder of the incident, which resulted in Panarin’s injury. ESPN’s Emily Kaplan reported that the league saw it all after Bunchnevich’s punch as “two wrestlers, which happens every night.” “
Rangers announced this morning that Panarin will be out of the game this season after sustaining a lower body injury in melee. The team have three games to play and will finish their regular season schedule on Saturday. Tomorrow night, the Rangers and Capitals are ready to face each other again.
