On the same day the NHL Department of Player Safety suspended Penguins defenseman Deryk Engelland for an illegal check to the head, it scheduled a Thursday hearing for Capitals rookie right wing Tom Wilson for his hit on Philadelphia Flyers center Brayden Schenn Tuesday night at Wells Fargo Center.

At 15:17 of the second period Wilson was assessed a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct. Wilson also received a five-minute major for fighting in the immediate aftermath of the hit.

Schenn did not return to the game and Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren told reporters that a baseline test for a concussion was unnecessary following the game. Schenn said he felt "better than I thought" on Wednesday and reported stiffness in his neck. Schenn is listed as questionable for the Flyers' game against the Columbus Blue Jackets Thursday night.
