Washington's Tom Wilson Fined $5,000 For "Roughing" Pavel Buchnevich


Tom Wilson has been fined for roughing Pavel Buchnevich from the NY Rangers.

NHL Player Safety tweeted the news on Tuesday morning, and the fine is $5,000, which is the maximum allowable by the CBA.

If you missed the play that got Wilson fined during the game on Monday night, which the Capitals won 6-3, the video is below.

Rangers coach David Quinn said after the game, "There are lines that can’t be crossed in this game. To me it’s just zero respect for the game in general. You’ve got one of the star players in the league now who could have gotten seriously, seriously hurt in that incident. You saw what happened and it happens time and time again with him. It’s just totally unnecessary.”
