The Colorado Avalanche have traded a 2019 4th round draft pick to the Nashville Predators for Colin Wilson. Wilson was a highly drafted player in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He is 27 years old and scored 35 points in 70 games for the Predators last season. There are some rumblings online (unconfirmed) that the Predators were considering buying out Wilsons contract to get some cap relief.

Early indication is Avalanche fans are happy with the move as evident in this fan’s tweet…


I will be adding more details and more detailed analysis and scouting report on Wilson in the future so check back in shortly. Once things die down a bit and I can get some information about how things all went down it will be added here.


What are your early thoughts Avalanche fans? Good deal? bad deal and a bad contract to pick up? Is this some foreshadowing of another move to come? Give it some thought and let us know what you think in the comments below and we can continue the conversation there.
