Penguins GM calls out Tom Wilson again: ‘Wilson didn’t even give Oleksiak a chance to get his gloves off’
Penguins General Manager Jim Rutherford has a lot of strong feelings regarding Tom Wilson.
When Wilson was supposedly challenged by Jamie Oleksiak in the second round of the 2018 playoffs, Rutherford was upset that Wilson refused the fight. “[H]e couldn’t run quick enough to get away from him,” Rutherford said then.
In December, Wilson threw down and engaged in Oleksiak, knocking the Penguins defenseman out with his fourth punch.
Now, Rutherford is upset about how Wilson engaged in the fight.
