Preds' Wilson Scores Twice Friday

News: Colin Wilson scored twice during the Predators' 5-2 win over the Ducks on Friday.
Analysis: Colin Wilson now has 10 goals with 20 assists over 76 games this season. He's obviously not known for his scoring touch, but he now has three goals in his last four games as Phoenix desperately holds onto its very slim playoff chances. Though this wasn't exactly the breakout season people were hoping for, the 24-year-old center still has more to come.

Preds' Wilson Ends Scoring Drought

News: Colin Wilson scored a first-period goal during the Preds' 6-1 rout of the Sabres on Thursday. It was his first point in eight games.
Analysis: With just 28 points in 73 games so far this season, Colin Wilson is not having the breakout campaign the team was hoping for. Furthermore, it was expected he would take over as the team's No. 2 center following the departure of David Legwand, but for now at least, that role appears to have gone to rookie Calle Jarnkrok who the Preds received as part of the Legwand trade. Bottom line, Wilson needs to show way more consistency around the net before we can start recommending him as a dependable fantasy option.

Two Helpers For Preds' Wilson

News: Colin Wilson assisted on second-period goals by Shea Weber and Craig Smith in Tuesday's win over Buffalo. He went plus-2 on the evening.
Analysis: Colin Wilson's got three assists and a plus-5 rating in the last two games, but had gone scoreless in eight straight before that. Wilson's been playing bigger minutes recently, so this uptick in production is noteworthy.

Preds' Wilson Gets Opportunity At Center

News: According to The Tennessean, the Predators appear "poised to make Colin Wilson their No. 1 Center" following the departure of David Legwand, the team's all-time leading scorer.
Analysis: Colin Wilson is a left winger by trade but has dabbled at times at center during his five-year NHL career. The Preds slotted Wilson on the second line Thursday between Gabriel Bourque and Craig Smith, and also gave him 4:11 on the wing for the team's top power play unit. Nashville has been patient with its 2008 seventh-overall pick but he has largely disappointed this year, scoring just five more points in 62 games (24) than he did in 25 games last season (19). Most recently, he has been mired in a horrendous slump with only three assists to show for the last 21 games. David Legwand's Predators legacy of 569 points in 958 games, including 28 in the playoffs, definitely leaves behind some large shoes to fill. With 19 games left on the docket, Wilson's mini-promotion should give him sufficient opportunity to prove he's up to the challenge.

Preds' Wilson Shifts From Wing To Center

News: Colin Wilson was shifted to center Tuesday against Winnipeg, the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: With Matt Cullen currently out with an upper-body injury, coach Barry Trotz is opting to use Colin Wilson at the center position instead of on the wing. Either way, it will be interesting to see how long the experiment lasts - with just 23 points in 54 games this season, Wilson is failing to live up to expectations yet again, so coach Trotz is no doubt looking to get the 24-year-old Wilson going any way he can. Until that happens, he's hard to recommend as a viable fantasy option in most formats.

Preds' Wilson Enduring Scoring Drought

News: Colin Wilson failed to hit the scoresheet Saturday against Colorado, stretching his pointless streak to six games after scoring seven points (2G, 5A) in his previous seven contests.
Analysis: And it's not like the whole team has been cold - the Preds have scored 16 goals over their past six games, but Colin Wilson hasn't been in on any of them, which is no doubt driving fantasy owners crazy. What's worse, with a plus-minus rating of -6 over that stretch, he has been a defensive liablity as well. Bottom line, Wilson had better turn his game around fast or he could find himself demoted to checking-line status. Feel free to bench him for now until he gets his game figured out.

Wilson Leads Preds Past Wings

News: Colin Wilson scored two goals and added an assist during Monday's 6-4 win over Detroit, giving him five points in his last three games.
Analysis: Colin Wilson now has 20 points in 39 games so far this season, putting him on pace to eclipse his career high of 35 points from two seasons ago.  He continues to skate on the Preds' top line alongside Mike Fisher and Patric Hornqvist, and represents very good fantasy value in medium to deeper formats.

Wilson Helps Preds Defeat Stars

News: Colin Wilson registered an assist during Thursday's 3-1 win over Dallas. However, he skated a season-low 11:06 on the Preds' third line and did not see any power play time.
Analysis: Colin Wilson now has 15 points (5G, 10A) in 32 games this season, so at his current pace he's well on his way to eclipsing the career-best 35 points he posted two seasons ago. However, his declining ice time is worth monitoring, especially with the man advantage, since a good chunk of his points have come on the power play the past few seasons. Don't be afraid to bench Wilson in favor of a guy who's seeing healthier minutes.

Preds' Wilson Snaps 11-Game Goal Drought

News: Colin Wilson snapped an 11-game goal drought when he potted his fourth of the season in Saturday's shootout loss to Philadelphia.
Analysis: This guy is talented, but he hasn't put all the pieces together from a consistency perspective. He has actually taken a step back this season. Bench him and hope he figures things out soon.

Preds' Wilson Adds Four Points In Win

News: Colin Wilson exploded for two goals and two assists Wednesday against the Avalanche.
Analysis: The veteran center entered Wednesday's contest with just five points in 14 games, but was nearly able to double that total against a goalie that had been considered one of the league's best to date. It's not likely that he'll be able to produce at anywhere near this pace moving forward, but he certainly proved that he has the potential to chip in offensively.

Preds' Wilson Scores PP Goal

News: Colin Wilson got on the scoreboard for the first time this year Tuesday, notching a power-play goal against the Wild.
Analysis: After skating just 12 and 13 minutes in the first two games this year, Colin Wilson played a more normal 16:26 in Tuesday's win. It's good to see he's up to the task after offseason shoulder surgery.

Preds' Wilson Back On Ice Following Shoulder Surgery

News: Colin Wilson (shoulder) participated in a full-contact scrimmage Friday, the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Colin Wilson's rehab appears to be on track after undergoing shoulder surgery back in May. At this point, there's no reason to suspect he won't start the season on schedule next month. After scoring 19 points in 25 games last season, he's expected to play a top-line role for the Preds this year. Don't forget about him on draft day.

Preds' Wilson Out 4-6 Months Following Shoulder Surgery

News: Colin Wilson is expected to miss 4-6 months after undergoing stabilization surgery on his left shoulder last week, according to Reuters.
Analysis: Colin Wilson had 19 points in 25 games before undergoing a similar procedure - on his right shoulder - in April. Given the new timeframe for his expected recovery, it's questionable whether he will be available for the start of the season come October.

Preds' Wilson Done For Season

News: Colin Wilson is slated to have season-ending surgery to repair his shoulder, the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Colin Wilson, who last suited up on March 9, was the Predators' leading scorer (with 19 points in 25 games) at the time of his injury. Also slated for season-ending procedures are teammates Gabriel Bourque and Paul Gaustad.

Preds' Wilson Skates

News: Colin Wilson (upper body) skated Wednesday, The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: It's still unclear whether Colin Wilson will be able to play again this season, but he did say he feels like he's made progress, and hasn't ruled out a return.

Preds' Wilson (Upper Body) May Be Out For Season

News: The Predators are uncertain if Colin Wilson (upper body) will be able to return this season, The Tennessean reports. "I don't know," coach Barry Trotz said of Wilson's potential return. "When I see him on the ice for us with a sweater on, then I think he'll have a chance to go."
Analysis: Colin Wilson has yet to skate with the team since suffering the upper body injury in a March 9 game against the Wild. While the team was optimistic Wilson a couple of weeks after the injury that Wilson would return to game action before the season ends, that is no longer looking nearly as certain.

Preds' Wilson (Upper Body) Back On Skates

News: Colin Wilson (upper body) has resumed skating but is still not close to returning, reports the Tennessean. "[Wilson's] still a ways away," coach Barry Trotz said. "It's not like [he'll be back] late this week or anything like that."
Analysis: Colin Wilson, who was injured March 9, has missed eight games so far and yet is still tied for second in team scoring with 19 points. It sounds like there is still no timetable for his return, so keep him glued to your fantasy bench for now.

Preds' Wilson Still Recovering From Upper Body Injury

News: Colin Wilson (upper body) remains out indefinitely, according to the Tennessean. "Things are getting better," Wilson said Friday, but added, "Right now I don't know how long I'm going to be out."
Analysis: So far, Colin Wilson has missed six games after falling and landing awkwardly on his right shoulder during a March 9 game against Minnesota. The good news is, once he's back and healthy, he should provide a boost to a Predators squad currently ranked 27th in the league in goals per game (2.36). Just don't expect him to get a lot of help from his supporting cast. In the meantime, keep him on your fantasy bench.

Preds' Wilson Out Through The Weekend

News: Colin Wilson will be out at least through the weekend, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: The Preds were able to win without their points leader Tuesday night, but they might find it tough on the remainder of their road trip without both Colin Wilson and Patric Hornqvist.

Preds' Wilson (Upper Body) Placed On IR

News: Colin Wilson (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Monday, The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Colin Wilson left Saturday's game against the Wild due to an upper-body injury. It is unknown how much time he will miss. This will be a big loss for the Preds, considering the fact that he leads the team in points with 19 (seven goals, 12 assists) this season.

Preds' Wilson (Upper Body) Will Not Return Saturday

News: Colin Wilson left Saturday's game against the Wild with an upper-body injury and will not return.
Analysis: Coming off his impressive four point (2G, 2A) performance against the Oilers on Friday, Colin Wilson skated a little over five minutes Saturday before exiting with the injury. Consider him day-to-day until more information regarding the ailment becomes available.

Preds' Wilson Snaps Slump

News: Colin Wilson registered two goals and two assists in Friday's win over Edmonton, snapping a stretch of play that saw him record one point over six games.
Analysis: The former first-round pick is having a solid season save for the recent slump. He's a talented player and the Preds are not going to explode for six goals too often. Considering he's a streaky player, it could be a sign that Colin Wilson will be more consistent over the next week.

Preds' Wilson Continues Streaking

News: Colin Wilson extended his points streak to five games Tuesday with two assists in an overtime win over Detroit, though he also went minus-2.
Analysis: Colin Wilson leads Nashville in points with 14 in 17 games this year, marking a breakout season for the young forward. Until Shea Weber started heating up a couple games ago, Wilson had been the lone bright spot offensively this year for the Preds.

Hot Streak For Preds' Wilson

News: Colin Wilson recorded a goal and an assist during Monday's 6-5 loss to Colorado, giving him 11 points (4G, 7A) in the nine games he's played so far this month.
Analysis: Colin Wilson is about as hot as they come right now. He's getting every opportunity to keep his streak alive, playing on the Preds' top line alongside David Legwand and Martin Erat. Go see if you can pluck him from your league's waiver wire.

Preds' Wilson Breaks Up Shutout With OT Winner

News: Colin Wilson broke up a 0-0 game just over two minutes into overtime Tuesday, scoring his fourth goal of the year to defeat the Sharks.
Analysis: Though he went scoreless in the last two games, Colin Wilson's been very useful in February, putting up seven points in six games.
