Fantasy Spin: Preds' Wilson flying under radar

If you're a fantasy owner who would gladly welcome a dual-eligible forward who is putting up nearly a point per game, then look no further than Colin Wilson.

Colin Wilson
Center - NSH
GOALS: 5 | ASST: 9 | PTS: 14
SOG: 21 | +/-: 0
Wilson (owned in only 15 percent of Yahoo! leagues) leads the Predators in scoring with 14 points in 17 games this season despite a widespread perception that he's a fantasy afterthought. The C/LW eligibile forward had a pair of assists in the Nashville Predators' 4-3 overtime win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday, extending his point streak to five games (2 G, 5 A) -- the most balanced scoring stretch of his career.

The 23-year-old had his share of critics after failing to emerge as a top-tier point producter after being selected with the seventh pick in the 2008 NHL Draft, but he is finally finding his rhythm in the Music City. Wilson did produce 30-plus points in each of the past two seasons, but -- outside of deep leagues -- has never been considered a viable fantasy option until now.

Report: Samuelsson out two weeks with broken finger

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland announced Wednesday that veteran forward Mikael Samuelsson has a non-displaced fractured finger and will miss a minimum of two weeks, according to a report by Detroit Free Press beat writer Helene St. James.

Samuelsson had missed 12 games this season with a groin injury, returned to the lineup Sunday against the Minnesota Wild, but took an Ian White shot off his left hand during the morning skate prior to Tuesday's game against the Nashville Predators.

St. James reported the Red Wings are awaiting test results on Jimmy Howard, who left the 4-3 overtime loss to the Predators in the first period with blurry vision. Howard gave up two goals on seven shots before he was lifted and replaced by Jonas Gustavsson.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
