His family lives in Winnipeg. He's a dual citizen.
from the his player page on the Preds site:
BACKGROUND: Nickname: “Willy”… On Twitter – @ColinWilson33… His dad, Carey, played 12 seasons in the NHL for Calgary, Hartford and N.Y. Rangers… His grandfather, Gerry, had a brief stint in the NHL with the Montreal Canadiens and later was the Winnipeg Jets team doctor. He is also known for pioneering the arrival of European hockey players in North America… Jaromir Jagr was his favorite player growing up, and St. Louis defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk and Toronto forward James van Riemsdyk are his closest friends in the sport… Works closely with Kids on the Block's Anti-Bullying Campaign in Nashville… Favorites include Ellie Goulding, Steve Angello and Of Monsters and Men (musicians), BrickTop’s (Nashville restaurant) and My Week with Marilyn (movie)… Would consider a walrus his spirit animal and Twinkies his guilty pleasure… Has a Golden Retriever named Gatsby.
