#NYR Ryan Strome confirms Artemiy Panarin is done for the season after what happened with Tom Wilson:
As for how the league handled it? "I think it's a joke, to be honest with you."
Preliminary word is that NYR Artemi Panarin won’t play the rest of the season.
FINED? FINED? Tip money for potentially killing a player? A multiple repeat offender who is as predatory a player as any who has skated in the NHL for decades? It only lists Buchnevich. Is there further punishment for what he did to Panarin? NHL credibility is at stake. https://t.co/8BWQwNj2MV
Panarin, along with Trouba and Lindgren, are done for the season, per #NYR Coach Quinn.
Honestly: there wasn't much difference between Bertuzzi-Moore and what Tom Wilson did to Panarin last night – aside from the resulting injury. The action and intent were as bad in my mind.
This is Tom Wilson of the NHL @capitals committing assault on Artemi Panarin of New York last night, his second attack on a player in the fight. The league will shrug its shoulders and let a team avenge of all of Wilson’s victims. It should, in fact, #BanTomWilsonForLife
Did Panarin not leap onto Wilson from behind creating this whole scuffle? You want to protect your stars? Get someone to protect them... stop blaming the league
I’m just getting prepared to see NHL player safety tweet this exact thing this morning:
“Washington’s Tom Wilson has been fined $5,000, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for roughing New York’s Artemi Panarin.”
Tom Wilson is an excellent hockey player. He is important to the Washington Capitals' playoff chances. In order to remain that way, he has to figure out a way to stay on the ice.

To put into context what happened: Panarin would have been killed had his skull made contact with the ice. Tom Wilson's $5,000 fine on his salary is like fining a McDonald's worker $17.00 dollars. #TomWilson #Allcaps
Real talk, mad respect to Islanders and Devils fans for actually defending Panarin and the Rangers
Panarin done for the season #cbj
Tom Wilson was punching a man who was face down on the ice.
Panarin pulled Wilson off of his teammate.
Wilson responded by behaving like a goddamn psychopath. https://t.co/sz2HIiPQBS
Ya know, the amazing part is if it's a guy on THEIR team that was injured they'd be having a shit fit!! Wonder if they'd be talking trash like this if Panarin had been paralyzed or seriously injured to the point of ending his career. What if he'd killed him? Assholes....
Litrally the same except Wilson is stronger and panarin needs to eat his wheaties
Yep. Wilson is a tank. Baffled at how often smaller dudes engage with him and expect a different outcome. The face washing into the ice—as evidenced by Crosby’s retaliation tonight in the Flyers game—happens all the time. Panarin got himself f’ed up by engaging.
Also just blatantly forget what he did to panarin
okay but what about slamming panarin's face into the ice when panarin tried to get wilson off of buchnevich https://t.co/TMd4i3uc0G
Panarin tried to peel Wilson off his teammate. Wilson pulled Panarin’s head down without a helmet and against the ice by his hair. But for his shoulder hitting the ice just a split second before the head, Panarin could have been killed. Will be a zoo tomorrow indeed.
1) Panarin was already on the injury report; and
2) There’s 3 games left in the season.
