The Rangers have found an enforcer to take care of Tom Wilson

During the shortened schedule, in a game between the Washington Capitals and the New York Rangers, Tom Wilson manhandled Pavel Buchnevich and Artemi Panarin. This scene was simply atrocious and as a result, Wilson was only fined $5,000, which was not much for the stupid actions he committed.

Players like Wilson, the Rangers don't have any in their lineup since they are very rare. But since they don't have any, the Rangers instead turned to a tough guy by the name of Ryan Reaves (34 years old, 6 feet 2 and 225 pounds), who will certainly be in uniform when the Rangers will be playing against the Caps. With such an enforcer in the lineup, it should calm Mr. Wilson down a bit. Although...

In short, Reaves was acquired in return for a third round pick when the Golden Knights didn't really need his services anymore, as he was left out a few times during the last playoffs. Reaves, who has spent 937 career minutes in the penalty box, carries a salary of $1.75 million, which is a lot to make sure Wilson doesn't cross the line, right?
