Breaking: Tom Wilson knocks Cole with a dangerous hit to the head!

Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson leveled Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Ian Cole with a dangerous hit to the head during the Friday night matchup between the Caps and the Penguins. Cole left for the locker room and did not return for the end of the second period. 

On the sequence, we can clearly see the Wilson feet left the ice, and that he targeted Cole's head with his shoulder. He only received a two-minute minor penalty for this hit.



This game is currently tied at 3-3 after the second period.

We will keep you updated on Cole status later tonight.

UPDATE : Ian Cole took the ice for the start of the third period.
