The NHL season is not even under way, but the Players' department of Safety is already strong at work.

Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson will have a hearing Saturday for interference on St. Louis Blues' Robert Thomas.

This particular incident happened early in the third period of the Blues’ 4-0 win on Friday night when Wilson delivered his hit long after Thomas was in possession of the puck.

Have a look at it here: 

It will be the first hearing for the department under the direction of its new leader, George Parros.
