NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Rookie Colin Wilson had a goal and two assists, and Nashville captain Jason Arnott had a goal and an assist in a 5-0 victory over the Atlanta Thrashers on Thursday night in the preseason opener for both.

Wilson signed with the Predators in the offseason after capping his sophomore season at Boston University with a national championship.

Arnott gave Nashville a 2-0 lead at 17:43 of the first. On Nashville's third goal, Steve Sullivan slid a pass to Arnott, who sent a cross-ice pass to J.P. Dumont, who scored on a wrist shot.

Nashville defensemen Teemu Laakso and Shea Weber also scored.

Dan Ellis started in goal for Nashville, stopping 13 shots. Mark Dekanich replaced him midway through the second period.
