Wilson said in a statement issued Friday that it is ''abundantly clear'' that Torres' check in Game 1 against Stoll was a clean hockey hit.
The NHL's Department of Player Safety sharply disagreed while suspending Torres for the rest of the second-round series Thursday. It is the fourth career suspension for Torres, who is considered a repeat offender in dangerous hits under the league's collective bargaining agreement.
Wilson says Torres will not appeal the suspension.
Stoll missed Game 2 of the series and there is no timetable for his return.
