The Preds hit the ice for morning skate at the Sommet Center in preparation for tonight's home game against the Edmonton Oliers. The story of the skate was rookie Colin Wilson
. After another strong skate, the Preds 2008 first round pick is set to lace up the skates tonight for his first NHL game.
After having working through a groin injury in the preseason, the 19-year old is very eager to join his team once again.
"I'm excited. I think it will be nice to get back out there on the ice especially for a game," Wilson stated after morning skate.
While it is not certain what line Wilson will be joining he joked that it would certainly not be the first or second, "but some where after that." The coaches indicated that Wilson may open the game centering Joel Ward
and Ryan Jones
, but the combinations may rotate throughout the game.
