head coach Todd Reirden didn’t agree with the ejection of winger on Friday night.
Wilson was assessed a match penalty for a hit to the head offorward late in the second period, but Reirden feels it was hardly worth even a minor penalty.
“I’m still trying to see how it’s a penalty,” Reirden said, according to. “I think any other player, I don’t know if — it’s maybe an interference call. Maybe.”
Reirden continued to say the play was incidental in nature.
“I’m having a really tough time with this one,” he said, according to. “Because he isn’t even intending to make a hit. It’s incidental contact.
“This guy is doing everything he can to try to play the right way and this is how things are happening,” the coach. “It’s a tough situation. We just had two players that have concussions they don’t even call a penalty on.”
Seney said postgame that he thought Wilson made contact with his shoulder.
“It was more kind of back of my shoulder,” Seney said, according to. “I don’t know if he was intending to do it or what. I haven’t had the chance to look at it yet.”
Wilson was playing in just his ninth game since returning from a 14-game suspension for a hit onforward during the preseason.
Seney was able to return for the third period of Friday’s contest after going through concussion protocol.
