Despite scoring 34 points in his first full NHL season, former BU All-American Colin Wilson saw limited action for Nashville is last year’s Stanley Cup playoffs. The Predators are looking to rely more on younger players this year and Wilson is using the playoff benchings as motivation to step up his game this season. He’s scored five points in four pre-season games, earning first-star honors in a 4-1 Preds’ win against Washington.
The #2 Terriers open their season at home with a two-game series against #7 North Dakota. Tonight’s game at Walter Brown Arena begins at 7 p.m. Captain Jenn Wakefield and forwards Marie-Philip Poulin and Jennelle Kohanchuk are back from Canadian National Team camp and will be in the lineup; however, senior defenseman Tara Watchorn is sidelined with a concussion.
