Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson will not have a hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety and will not face a suspension for a hit that knocked Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brian Dumoulin out of Sunday's Game 2 during the teams' second-round playoff series. "The league is a neutral party," Capitals coach Barry Trotz said Monday. "They look at it. I know each organization, each fan base, will have their own opinions. That's why there's a neutral party in it. Whatever they decided, we were fine with." Wilson's shoulder appeared to strike Dumoulin in the head as the defenseman turned away from an oncoming hit from Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin . Dumoulin did not return to the game, and he practiced in Pittsburgh on Monday in a noncontact jersey. He has averaged more than 22 minutes for the Penguins in the playoffs as a top-pairing defenseman. According to a person familiar with the league's supplemental discipline process, in the NHL's view, Dumoulin materially changed the position of his head and body immediately before contact. Wilson was chasing him and not able to initiate any sort of hit, but Dumoulin stopped suddenly. Per the wording of Rule 48.1.iii, such hits are considered unavoidable and not suspension-worthy. A penalty wasn't called on the ice.
