April 7, 2018 was the last time Scott Wilson played in a professional regular season game. On Sept. 30, he fractured his ankle heading into the first week of the NHL's regular season. Now, 14-and-a-half weeks later, with surgery and extensive rehab behind him, the 26-year old forward is ready for the next step - in Rochester.
Wilson cleared waivers Wednesday at noon, and immediately joined the Amerks for practice. It took all of about five seconds for him to score during the first line rush with Kevin Porter and Wayne Simpson, followed immediately by some hoots and hollers.
