Rangers Put George Parros (NHL Head of Player Safety) on Blast Over Tom Wilson’s Non-Suspension

If you haven’t been paying attention to the hockey world over the last 24 hours, you would have missed quite the incident between the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals last night.

Here’s your refresher:

Tom Wilson in the middle of another controversy on the ice for dangerous actions. Nothing new there.

For his actions on Monday night against Pavel Buchnevich and Artemiy Panarin, Wilson was fined $5,000 and was suspended for zero games. Let me repeat that. $5,000 … for a professional athlete … and zero games. For a repeat offender of Wilson’s caliber and the result of his actions (Panarin will not play the rest of the season), the fine and non-suspension is the lightest of pats on the wrist the Department of Player Safety could have given him.

So anyway, the Rangers were not having it. Take a look at this absolute shredding.

I, mean, wow. Those are some really strong words.

Posted on Tuesday night prior to the NHL slate of games set to begin, the Rangers released a statement voicing their displeasure with the handling of Wilson’s actions and called for the resignation of George Parros, former NHL enforcer and current Head of the Department of Player Safety.

Strong words from the organization that have been echoed by a large portion of the hockey community. We’ll keep an eye on this situation as it unfolds, as something tells me this isn’t the last development between now and tomorrow night’s rematch between the Rangers and Capitals.
