Tom Wilson is known to be aggressive on the ice. His record is decorated with serious fighting infractions during games. He has been suspended games at a time due to the severity of his fighting. 

In last night's game (May 3) against the New York Rangers, Wilson was involved in a couple of serious fights. 

The first was a fall onto Buchnevich. The second was a brawl between Wilson and Panarin which resulted in (a helmetless) Panarin falling hard onto the ice. Wilson received two roughing minors and a 10 minute misconduct. This morning (May 4) Wilson was fined $5,000 (maximum allowable under the CBA) for roughing Buchnevich. 

Panarin left the game due to a lower body injury. Wilson was only disciplined for his infraction against Buchnevich. 

Hockey is a sport that is filled with fighting and at times is inevitable. But Wilson has crossed the line yet again. Wilson was only given a slap on the wrist for something potentially life threatening. The Department of Player Safety has brushed off how serious the altercation was. 

Wilson has put the safety of many players into question and has received minimal disciplinary actions for it. Wilson deserves to be suspended (from playing or even the league).
