Wilson recorded a goal and three shots during Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson has struggled since arriving from the Nashville Predators during the summer with just three goals and seven points in 21 games. The first-round pick from the 2008 NHL Entry Draft will need to improve his production to have much fantasy value outside of the deepest of leagues.

Wilson scored his first goal of the season during Thursday's 6-2 rout of the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old forward now has two points in his last three games since being activated off the injured list. A streaky performer throughout his career, his fantasy value remains somewhat murky, but if he can get some more ice time as a veteran forward on a young Avalanche squad, the first-round pick from the 2008 NHL Entry Draft could carve out some fantasy value in deeper leagues.

Wilson (undisclosed) will be in action against the Senators on Friday, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson -- who has missed the Avs' previous six contests -- will no doubt be looking for his first goal of the season. The winger's offensive struggles extend beyond just finding the back of the net, as he has registered a mere two helpers in his eight appearances. For now, the former first-round pick will rejoin the power play, although if his productivity doesn't pick up soon, coach Jared Bednar may have to look for other options.

Wilson (undisclosed) has yet to practice with the team since his injury but will resume skating later this week, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson was on a small hot streak before his injury posting two points in three games, and with this update it seems he won't miss more than another week or two before he returns to the action. The 28-year-old recorded 35 points in 70 games last season for Nashville, and Colorado will certainly welcome back his point production and veteran presence to their young lineup when he's cleared to return.

Wilson (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The Avalanche will have to pluck some talent from their minor-league system, as Wilson and fellow veteran Gabriel Bourque (upper body) have been moved to IR. As for Wilson, who was formerly with the Predators, he's had a rough start to the 2017-18 campaign between this latest injury and two assists representing his only points through eight games.

Wilson hasn't registered a point through the first four games of the regular season.

EDGE Analysis

The Avalanche have surprised to start the season with a 3-1 record and 15 goals. However, Wilson hasn't got in on the action. The veteran winger is slotted into a fourth-line role at even strength, but he has averaged 2:20 of power-play time per game, so he's receiving at least some prime offensive minutes. Still, it appears like his 2014-15 campaign of 20 goals and 42 points will likely go down as a career year. Wilson isn't a strong fantasy option in the majority of settings at this stage of the game.

Wilson was acquired by the Avalanche from the Predators on Saturday in exchange for a 2019 fourth-round pick.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson was likely looking at a reduced role this upcoming season as Nashville was facing a potential logjam of talented forwards -- especially after adding Scott Hartnell and Nick Bonino. Instead, the 27-year-old Wilson will probably see his ice time tick back up near his 2014-15 minutes (16:13), rather than what he saw this past year (14:57). If the winger can secure a spot on the Avs' power play, he should continue offering solid mid-range fantasy value.

A hamstring injury caused Wilson to miss the first four games of the Stanley Cup Finals, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The power winger was able to play in the final two games of the series, but he appeared to be bogged down by the ailment with two hits counting as his lone box-scoring markings. Wilson has two years remaining on his contract with the Predators, and he'll collect $3.93 million annually before having the chance to hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

Wilson is going through warmups and will play Thursday in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals

EDGE Analysis

Thursday marks Wilson's Stanley Cup debut after being a scratch for the first four games of the series. He'll slide in alongside Frederick Gaudreau and Harry Zolnierczyk as the Predators look to steal a win on the road. Wilson tallied two points and two blocked shots in the Western Conference Finals against the Ducks.

Wilson (undisclosed) figures to be in the lineup for Game 5 against the Penguins on Thursday, per Adam Vingan of The Tennessean.

EDGE Analysis

This time of year, coaches are hesitant to announce any changes to the lineup prior to a game and coach Peter Laviolette is no different. While he wouldn't confirm Wilson was ready to play, the exclusion of P.A. Parenteau -- as reported by Tom Gulitti of NHL.com -- combined with Wilson's practice attendance says what the coach won't. Expect the 27-year-old winger to slot in on the Preds' fourth line alongside Frederick Gaudreau and Harry Zolnierczyk.
