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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Avs' Wilson Expected To Return Thursday Or Saturday

News: Ryan Wilson (knee) completed a full practice for the second day in a row Monday, and the defenseman will likely return to Colorado's lineup either Thursday in Boston or Saturday in Washington, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson missed the entire preseason and is expected to miss the Avs' third regular season game Tuesday night. Even with the team off to a surprising 2-0 start, the veteran defenseman should provide a nice boost. He's never scored more than 21 points in a season, but does own a plus-20 mark through 199 career appearances.

Avs Place Wilson On Injured Reserve

News: The Avs placed Ryan Wilson (knee) on injured reserve, retroactive to Sept. 15, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson missed the entirety of the preseason with the knee injury. This move spares the Avs from having to make an additional roster cut before Opening Night.

Avs' Wilson (Knee) Not Skating Yet

News: Ryan Wilson (knee) hasn't begun skating yet, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson will almost certainly begin the year on IR. Once he returns, he's slated to be on the team's second defensive pairing along with Tyson Barrie.

Avs' Wilson Could Miss Opener

News: Ryan Wilson suffered a knee injury in Sunday's Burgundy-White preseason game, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson's recent setback comes after he was forced to miss some time last season due to an ankle injury. At minimum, the defensemen faces missing a couple of weeks, which could prevent him from playing in Colorado's regular-season opener Oct. 2 against Anaheim.

Avs' Wilson Shut Down For The Season

News: Ryan Wilson (ankle) has been shut down for the remainder of the regular season, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson played in just 12 games this season as he battled numerous leg injuries, ending with a high-ankle sprain. Wilson was expected to be a top four defenseman and could have solidified his role alongside Eric Johnson as the team's top defensive pairing, but could not stay healthy this season.

Avs' Wilson Does Not Participate In Thursday's Practice

News: Ryan Wilson (ankle) missed Thursday's practice and may be shut down for the rest of the season, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Ryan Wilson has only played in 12 of the team's 43 games this season, and with only five games remaining, Wilson may be shut down for the rest of the season. The Avs are going nowhere playoff-wise, already having been eliminated, so it might be best to let their young defenseman fully recover. Tyson Barrie and Stefan Elliot will continue to play in Wilson's place as they have most of the season.

Avs' Wilson Back on IR

News: Ryan Wilson (ankle) has been placed on IR by the Avs.
Analysis: With Ryan Wilson having re-injured his ankle against Vancouver on Sunday, fellow blueliner Tyson Barrie has been recalled from AHL Lake Erie.
