According to the NHL Player Safety Department, Wilson delivered an “illegal check to the head” during the second period.

Penguins forward Zach Aston-Reese was exiting the defensive zone when Wilson delivered a vicious hit to the head.

Aston-Reese remained down on the ice and bleeding for several moments. He skated off under his own power, but did not return.

No penalty was assessed on the play.
