Wilson heads to NHL Draft Combine

Next Monday, Colin Wilson, now ranked number 8 for the upcoming NHL draft by International Scouting Services, heads to the annual NHL Draft Combine in Toronto for for testing and interviews with NHL scouts and personnel directors.

UNH’s James Van Riemsdyk, last year’s #2 draft choice and Wilson's teammate on the NTDP U18s, offered some thoughts about his former linemate, as well as other top prospects, for the NHL’s 2008 Entry Draft Blog.

If I were to look at any guy that I played with or against in my
career, Colin is the one guy that I would consider almost a guarantee to play in the NHL just because of how he is. He works so hard and is very talented and I would definitely say he will someday have a successful NHL career.

USA Today's Redline Report looked at draft eligibles who played in the recent World U18 Championships and named 2008 recruit Corey Trivino, who played for gold-medal winning Team Canada a "rising" prospect:

Corey Trivino — Exposure at the world U-18s was great for him as he stepped up his game playing with skilled linemates. Was consistently dangerous and cashed in chances around net.
