Colin Wilson Misses Game

Colin Wilson was not with the Admirals Friday night as the team played Texas. The Admirals center "had an appointment in California", according to Head Coach Lane Lambert.

Lambert said he did not know the status of Wilson - even for tomorrow's game - but did confirm Wilson's appointment was regarding a lower body injury.

We have additional information from an off-the-record source that indicates the lower body injury is in fact Wilson's lingering groin injury (no big surprise). This source indicates that Wilson wanted to meet with a specialist, as there may be a difference of opinions in some circles about the remaining effects of the injury.

Either way, Wilson seems to be a game-time decision for tomorrow, and this may stretch out for a while.

Well that's just great.

But I guess it's better to get all opinions and options looked into to try to fix this now, instead of this lingering for years and years and flaring up every season.

I'll predict that he doesn't play another game for us this year. With the problems he appears to be having (I have no details just perception), they'll do long term rehab and/or surgery. Ah, well, hope I'm wrong.

Just get healthy. Wilson has a long career ahead of himself and he can't worry about NOW!

I was going to say the same thing. Don't push it Colin. No need to rush.

I have Wilson in my keeper league - I honestly thought he was a candidate for ROY.

I sure hope he heals up properly!

Note for future reference: any Predators prospect getting Calder hype in preseason will not even come close to meeting those expectations. See: Hörnqvist, Patric; Radulov, Alexander; Wilson, Colin.

And Rinne, Pekka. He was in the discussion last year even though I'm pretty sure he wasn't eligible.

He was eligible, and came in 4th in calder voting. But he didn't have much hype during preseason (as a potential calder candidate).

At least Colin has a decent layoff to try to get healthier, I don't think they play until Friday, after playing last Saturday. He didn't register a shot on goal on Saturday as far as I know. A few posts said a non-factor. (Edit: 1 shot vs Manitoba, O +/- )

One thing he should do is work on his goal scoring even if at first it feels a bit selfish to him not to pass. He's a very good passer, but game before last Admirals fans were groaning saying that two of his feeds had a very high probability of being goals yet the Admiral on the receiving end didn't even come close. (he had two shots on goal, no points) I think he enjoys being a good passer, which is fine, but from watching him in college his goal scoring moves need more work. He's not going to be the super slick playmaker I don't think, he'll have to pot goals and be well rounded (and get some dirty goals sometimes) to get good point production. So take some shots Colin! Although I am more excited about his passing game, but hopefully he can do both eventually in the NHL.

As few shots as he's been getting, and not much of a factor on assists, so far, I hope part of the reason is injury, and I hope he can finally recover. The specialist must not have given too bad of news (or too good, like "hey, a simple surgery will fix this for good!") as he played right away.

Is this injection that Wilson received when he saw the specialist just the same thing that they did previously?

In Glennon's article yesterday in the Tennessean:

Wilson returns: Preds prospect Colin Wilson returned to the Milwaukee lineup Saturday after missing Friday's game with what was listed as a groin injury. Wilson received an injection Friday that apparently alleviated some discomfort he'd been dealing with.

Jones on Wilson: When he was in Milwaukee prior to his recall Friday, Preds forward Ryan Jones played on a line with top prospect Colin Wilson, who's managed two assists in six games for the Admirals.

"He's a good player,'' Jones said. "He kind of went through a rough start to the year. Confidence is a funny thing. When it's high, you can be a really good NHL player and when it's low, you can be a mediocre AHL player. So I think it's important for anyone who gets sent down, his situation or mine, to just build confidence.''

Does this sound promising or not?

***
Wilson opened eyes early in his first pro training camp and appeared to be well on his way to earning a permanent spot on the NHL roster this season. But a groin/adductor muscle injury — one that also hampered him in college — sidelined him for a large chunk of camp and flared up again 10 games into the season.
...
Only a few days ago, however, doctors believe they found the root of his injury — a nerve causing a muscle in the affected area to spasm, then tighten up and become painful.

A numbing injection eased the muscle, allowing Wilson to play without pain last Saturday.
...
Either Wilson will continue to receive injections with the hope that will offer a long-term solution, or he could undergo a minor surgical procedure that will settle the nerve.
***


Tennessean

To me it reads as if they have made some progress ("It's a nerve.") but still don't know whether he will just keep taking injections to numb the nerve or need surgery. So it's a bit negative to me, rather than positive. But Wilson sounds excited about the news, since he's been bothered since college it seems and now at least they can treat it.

What is it with this team and odd medical problems?

R. Murray: Neurolocigal neck problem
T. Vokoun: Thrombophlebitis
C. Wilson: Nerve problem in his groin.

No kidding. I hope Wilson gets better soon. We really need him to develop and not be on the shelf.

I'd honestly rather him opt for the surgery, so it won't be an issue again.

Pretty weak fight by both sides. Call it his first pro wrestle. Well, he did get a couple swings in.

I saw in the game sheet the other guy got a roughing as well as the fighting major. Must have been a reason for Wilson to decide to go.

How has Wilson looked when healthy? It looks like he's had a rough transition to pro hockey.

Did he leave college too early? He has great hockey sense and is already physically mature so I thought he would adapt quicker than most prospects and was surprised when I came across his stats for this season.

Wilson didn't look bad other than a few rookie mistakes here and there. Mainly still used to be the most dominant player on the ice, but slow to realize he isn't. Could work on his skating.
