On Wednesday, the Department of Player Safety brought down the hammer on Tom Wilson by suspending him for 20 games.

The suspension was the result of a hit Wilson delivered to the head of Oskar Sundqvist of the Blues during a preseason game and now Wilson will be out of the lineup for basically one quarter of the Capitals' season.

Furthermore, Wilson stands to lose a hefty amount of money due to 20-game suspension that was handed down to him.

If this is the DoPS' way of sending a message, we're all for it because player safety is the top concern at the end of the day and nobody wants to see anyone get hurt.
