Wilson makes NHL debut

Former Terrier and Hobey Baker Award finalist Colin Wilson, recovered from an injury, made his NHL debut last night in the Predators 6-1 loss to the Edmonton Oilers in Nashville. Wilson didn't figure in the Nashville goal but earned kudos from Coach Barry Trotz.

“Individually, I thought Wilson was really good. I liked him a lot. When he was out there (he) created chances, went to the hard areas, and forced himself to the net and good things happen when you do that. For someone who hasn’t played in a few weeks he jumped in there pretty well. He’s only going to get better.”
Wilson was interviewed after the game by PredsOnTheGlass.
