Wilson posted his first point of the season with three assist in a 6-2 victory against the Lightning on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

With his first three-point game since March 25, 2017, Wilson more than makes up for his five-game pointless streak to begin 2019-20. Wilson now has three points and a plus-5 rating in six games. He posted 12 goals and 27 points last season, which far surpassed his totals from his first season with the Avalanche in 2017-18.

Wilson has zero points with a plus-1 rating and three shots on net in two games this season.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old was a healthy scratch in the team's first two games of the season, but he's appeared as a bottom-six forward in the last two contests. Wilson dealt with a lower-body injury during training camp and didn't make his preseason debut until late September, so it might take him some time to truly get going this month. He had 12 goals and 27 points in 65 games last season.

WIlson (lower body) will make his preseason debut Saturday against Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

The Avalanche have been cautious with Wilson throughout camp as he's dealt with lower-body tightness, but his presence in Saturday's lineup suggests he's no longer dealing with that issue. The 29-year-old American, who totaled 12 goals and 27 points in 65 games last campaign, will skate in a bottom-six role with Colorado this season.

Wilson is being held out of practice due to lower-body tightness, AJ Haefele of BSNDenver.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson's issue doesn't sound overly serious, so he should be able to get into the lineup for an exhibition game prior to Colorado's regular-season opener against Calgary on Oct. 3. The 29-year-old posted 12 goals and 27 points in 65 games last campaign and should be similarly productive in 2019-20.
