Vegas Golden Knights forward Ryan Reaves won't be called to the carpet following a hit he delivered to Washington Capitals winger Tom Wilson, a source told Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post.

The incident occurred late in the second period of Tuesday's game. Reaves was assessed a five-minute major for interference and a game misconduct following the play.
