Wilson (concussion) is expected to play Friday following a three-game injury layoff, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Recall that Wilson was drilled by Vegas enforcer Ryan Reaves in a Dec. 4 road game, which some viewed as poetic justice for the Capitals forward, who certainly delivers his share of questionable hits and is no stranger to the league's player safety division. At any rate, Wilson's fantasy owners will be eager to get him back into lineups, as he's off to a career-best offensive pace with eight goals and six assists through his first 11 games.
Wilson (concussion) took the ice during practice Tuesday, sporting a non-contact jersey. Wilson was not skating as of Monday, though he was considered a candidate to retake the ice later in the week. Just a day later is a minor surprise, but it puts the veteran thumper on his path toward returning. Shedding the non-contact jersey marks Wilson's next step toward a return, so look out for news of that occurrence.
Wilson (concussion) could resume on-ice activities later this week, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. Wilson has not played since he was clipped by Golden Knights' enforcer, Ryan Reaves and suffered a concussion as a result of the hit. Coach Todd Reirden is hopeful that Wilson can resume skating later in the week as he continues to work his way back to full health. The 24-year-old has scored eight goals and posted 14 points in 11 games this season.
Wilson (concussion) will not be ready to play Saturday evening against host Columbus, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Wilson is still feeling the effects of a blindside hit that he absorbed from enforcer Ryan Reaves of the Golden Knights in Tuesday's contest. No stranger to delivering questionable hits himself, Wilson has otherwise enjoyed a spectacular 2018-19 campaign consisting of eight goals and six helpers, with four power-play points through 11 games. Look for Travis Boyd to continue seeing ice time on the fourth line with Andre Burakovsky manning the top unit during Wilson's absence.
Wilson (concussion) won't be in the lineup versus Arizona on Thursday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Given the severity of the hit on Wilson by Ryan Reaves, the Toronto native returning to the lineup this quickly would likely have raised some red flags at NHL headquarters. The team hasn't provided a specific timeline for when the winger might be eligible to return, but given the difficulty of diagnosing concussions, the team (and fantasy owners) will likely have to take a wait and see approach.
