Colin Wilson

Someone else the Pens should look into trading for is former Nashville Predator Colin Wilson. The former first round pick was recently traded to the Colorado Avalanche. But it would be no surprise to see Wilson on the move again, especially to the Steel City.

Wilson has been a consistent point producer for the Preds throughout his career averaging around 35 points a season, the amount he put up last season. The only concern about Wilson is he only played a full 82 game season one time in his career, and put up another 81 game season one other time. Injuries are a concern when it comes to him, but he is well worth the risk.

He is an effective penalty killer that can put up 35 points a year in a third line roll. Who wouldn’t want that?
