Wilson tallied an assist, a plus-2 rating, two shots and five hits during Thursday's 4-2 win over the Bruins. Wilson continues to do his part to shake his reputation as a dangerous goon with his 22nd point in 24 games. Time will tell if the 24-year-old is truly reformed, but his offensive production has skyrocketed in 2018-19 and gives him broad appeal across the fantasy spectrum.
Wilson tallied a goal and four shots during Sunday's 3-2 win over the Red Wings. Wilson has cooled off a little in recent weeks after missing three games due to a concussion in early December, but has still managed 12 goals and 20 points in 22 games. The 6-foot-4, 218-pound winger continues to have broad fantasy appeal as he is on track to finish with 30-plus goals and over 50 points for the first time in his NHL career.
Wilson is still coming to grips with his 14-game suspension, Andy Strickland of Fox Sports Midwest reports. Wilson admitted he's not hitting as much for fear of facing supplemental discipline, and the numbers seem to bear that out (averaging 2.8 hits per game versus 3.2 hits per game in 2017-18). The 24-year-old winger is likely in for a difficult outing in his first appearance in St. Louis since the infamous hit on Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist in the preseason. Time will tell if the Toronto native is truly a changed man, but the decline in hits (54) and PIM (30) coupled with the improvement in his offensive totals (11 goals, 19 points in 19 games) certainly suggest he's trying.
Wilson recorded a goal, an assist and two shots during Saturday's 3-2 win over the Senators. Wilson has been on a tear since returning from a 14-game suspension on Oct. 27, notching eight goals and 19 points in 18 games. Now a potent offensive force, the 24-year-old winger has moved from the fringes of fantasy relevance to more broad appeal and should be played regularly.
Wilson provided the game-winning goal in Friday's 2-1 triumph over the visiting Sabres. Evgeny Kuznetsov caught a lackadaisical Carter Hutton attempting to control the puck from behind the cage, so he ripped it away and fed Wilson for a go-ahead third-period goal that held up as the winning tally. While he's no longer on the top line, Wilson is still getting it done for fantasy owners, as he's up to 10 goals and seven helpers in just 15 games. As long as he stays out of trouble, the 24-year-old winger should continue to thrive for the defending champs.
