Avs' Wilson May Move on

News: Ryan Wilson is not expected to re-sign with the Avalanche, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: After playing in just three games this past season due to a shoulder injury, Ryan Wilson will be facing an uphill battle as he attempts to earn a significant role on another NHL team as a depth defender.

Avs' Wilson (Shoulder) Needs Season-Ending Surgery

News: Ryan Wilson will undergo surgery on his ailing shoulder and miss the remainder of the season.
Analysis: With Ryan Wilson set to become a free agent after the season, it looks like he might have played his last game with the Avalanche. Injuries have been tough to avoid for the blueliner the past three seasons, as he's suited up in only 43 contests during that time.

Avs Place Wilson On IR

News: Ryan Wilson (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Monday.
Analysis: Since Ryan Wilson was deemed unfit to play for the Avs during their four-game road trip that began Saturday, the team decided to move him to IR to free up a roster spot for a potential call-up if needed. Wilson will continue to skate on his own back in Colorado, with the hope that he'll be ready to go when the team returns to their home ice Nov. 20 against the Capitals.

Avs' Wilson Out For Four-Game Road Trip

News: Ryan Wilson (shoulder) will not travel with the Avalanche for their four-game road trip beginning Saturday in Philadelphia, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson is nearing the end of the two- to three-week timetable he was given for his shoulder injury and appears to be progressing well, but not significantly enough to be an option for the Avs. The team has resisted placing him on injured reserve throughout the duration of his absence, instead getting by with seven defensemen during that time.

Avs' Wilson To Miss 2-3 Weeks

News: Ryan Wilson (shoulder) has been ruled out for two-to-three weeks, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson sustained the shoulder injury Tuesday night against the Panthers, after he collided with an opponent. After opening the season as a healthy scratch for the Avs, Wilson had started to settle back into regular duty on the third pairing, but it now looks like he'll be forced to injured reserve. Nate Guenin and Zach Redmond will now be tasked with replacing him.

Avs' Wilson Leaves With Shoulder Injury

News: Ryan Wilson left Tuesday's game with a shoulder injury and will not return.
Analysis: It's not clear what the extent of the injury is, but consider him day-to-day for now.

Avs' Wilson Scratched Tuesday

News: Ryan Wilson will be a healthy scratch Tuesday against the Maple Leafs, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson was thought to have suffered an injury after taking a puck off his helmet Monday afternoon, but he's apparently feeling fine. Instead, it appears coach Patrick Roy has simply chosen to swap Nate Guenin in for Wilson, who has posted no points and a minus-2 rating over two games.

Avs' Wilson Back In Lineup As Forward

News: After missing the previous 17 games as a healthy scratch, Ryan Wilson will return to the lineup as a forward Saturday against St. Louis, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: With regular checking-line forward Cody McLeod day-to-day with an ankle injury, Ryan Wilson will see limited action on the fourth line against the Blues. Once thought to be one of the Avs' most promising defensemen, Wilson has been limited to just 34 games over the past two seasons due to a combination of injury and healthy scratch. His fantasy value is at an extremely low ebb, and he should not be counted on in most standard formats.

Avs' Wilson Healthy Scratch Sunday

News: Ryan Wilson will be a healthy scratch Sunday when the Avalanche host the Tampa Bay Lightning, The Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson will join fellow Avalanche blueliner Andre Benoit in the press box to accommodate the return of Erik Johnson who sat out the last two games with a suspension. Wilson has suited up 22 times this season, recording six assists along the way.

Ryan Wilson

Avs' Wilson Having Injury-Plagued Season

News: Ryan Wilson has no goals and five assists in 21 games so far this season.
Analysis: The blueliner has struggled with injuries all season, but he does have the ability to chip in when called upon. Expect his role to stay mostly the same after the break.

1/11/2014

Ryan Wilson, D, COL

Ryan Wilson

Avs Recall Wilson

News: Ryan Wilson has been recalled from his conditioning assignment at AHL Lake Erie, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Although he was originally scheduled to remain with Lake Erie for two weeks, Ryan Wilson was only in the minors for five days, as the unavailability of Tyson Barrie (shoulder) and Nick Holden (personal) for Saturday's game necessitated Wilson's call-up. Look for him to skate on the third pairing with Karl Stollery, who was also recalled Saturday.

Avs Send Wilson On Conditioning Assignment

News: Ryan Wilson was sent to AHL Lake Erie for a 14-day conditioning assignment by the Avalanche on Monday.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson has played in 13 games for the Avalanche this season but has struggled a bit, totaling four assists on the year and has been dealing with a back injury. A full 14-day conditioning assignment will let him rehab back to full speed on the ice for the Avs. He is scheduled to return to Colorado on Jan. 19.

Avs' Wilson Returns To Lineup

News: Ryan Wilson (back) returned to the lineup Friday, logging 21:25 of ice time in a 7-2 loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: It marked Ryan Wilson's first game since Nov. 6. Wilson was activated from injured reserve last week but had been scratched for a handful of games before Christmas break, as coach Patrick Roy wanted the defenseman to get back to full speed. He'll presumably be a mainstay in the lineup moving forward, but don't expect him to provide much in the way of point production.

Ryan Wilson, D, COL

Ryan Wilson

Avs' Wilson Out Saturday

News: Ryan Wilson (back) will not play Saturday vs. the Kings, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Coach Patrick Roy said the defenseman still needs to get in further conditioning work as he makes his way back from a back injury. He could be a possibility for Monday's game against the Sharks.

Ryan Wilson, D, COL

Ryan Wilson

Avs' Wilson Could Be Used Saturday

News: Coach Patrick Roy said he might play Ryan Wilson (back) Saturday vs. the Kings, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The Avs had anticipated that Ryan Wilson would return last week, but the team ultimately decided he was in need of further conditioning work. He's already been activated from injured reserve; Roy is simply waiting until he gets back to full speed before using him in games.

Ryan Wilson, D, COL

Ryan Wilson

Avs' Wilson Still Out Of Lineup

News: Ryan Wilson (back) remains out of the lineup and will not be reevaluated until Wednesday, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Previously expected to return over the weekend, Ryan Wilson has now been ruled out through Tuesday's game in Dallas. He hasn't played since Nov. 6, and his return date remains uncertain.

Ryan Wilson

Avs' Wilson Still On Pace To Return Saturday

News: Avs coach Patrick Roy said Wednesday that Ryan Wilson (back) is still on pace to return to the lineup Saturday against the Wild.
Analysis: It's looking increasingly likely that Ryan Wilson will make his return Saturday, after spending more than a month on the shelf with the back issue, so long as he avoids a setback over the rest of the week.

12/10/2013

Ryan Wilson, D, COL

Ryan Wilson

Avs' Wilson Could Return Saturday

News: Coach Patrick Roy said Ryan Wilson (back) could be activated from injured reserve Saturday.
Analysis: The decision will be made based on how Ryan Wilson progresses during practice this week, but his return appears imminent barring no further setbacks. In addition, fellow defenseman Jan Hejda is on a similar return timetable as Wilson, potentially putting the Avs back at full strength defensively before the weekend's out.

Avs' Wilson Needs More Time Off

News: Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy said Ryan Wilson (back) is about two weeks away from returning to practice, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Because of his long absence, Ryan Wilson will probably require more than one full-contact practice before the Avs will feel comfortable activating from IR, perhaps delaying his return to game action beyond those two weeks. The team will get by with Tyson Barrie on the blue line while Wilson remains out of commission.

11/18/2013

Ryan Wilson, D, COL

Ryan Wilson

Avs' Wilson Placed On IR

News: Ryan Wilson was placed on injured reserve by the Avs retroactive to Nov. 6, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson has played in a total of 10 games this season, totaling four assists. He's still expected to miss at least the rest of the week, so the Avs will create an extra roster spot by placing him on IR.

11/8/2013

Ryan Wilson, D, COL

Ryan Wilson

Avs' Wilson To Miss At Least Two Weeks

News: Ryan Wilson (back) will miss at least two weeks, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: It became apparent to the Avalanche over the last couple of days that Ryan Wilson was still a ways away from returning to practice, so the team decided the best course of action was to give him some extended rest. Expect Wilson to be placed on injured reserve within a few days to open up a spot for a extra skater.

Ryan Wilson

Avs' Wilson To Sit Friday

News: Ryan Wilson (back) will not play Friday vs. the Flames, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson left Wednesday's game with the back injury and will continue to be evaluated before the Avs provide an update on his status. The team will plug in Nick Holden to take his spot on defense Friday.

Avs' Wilson Sustains Back Injury In Loss

News: Ryan Wilson sustained a back injury in Wednesday's 6-4 loss to the Predators, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson skated just 5:31 of ice time before exiting. The Avalanche will re-evaluate him Thursday morning and should have an update on his status at that time.

Ryan Wilson

Avs' Wilson Activated From IR

News: Ryan Wilson (knee) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.
Analysis: As expected, Ryan Wilson was activated in advance of Saturday's game in Washington, where he'll be making his season debut. Wilson should help further fortify an Avalanche defense that was already performing well in front of goalie Semyon Varlamov.

Ryan Wilson

Avs' Wilson Likely To Return Saturday

News: Ryan Wilson (knee) is likely to return to the ice Saturday for the Avalanche, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson is almost all the way back from a knee injury first sustained during training camp, but he'll still sit out Thursday against the Bruins and get a few more days of recovery in. Health issues resulted in a disappointing 2012-13 campaign for Wilson, but with the knee injury seemingly behind him, he could quickly reemerge on the first pairing with Erik Johnson.
