Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Left off postseason roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (lower body) wasn't included on Colorado's 31-man postseason roster and won't be available for the playoffs.

There haven't been any updates on Wilson's condition since he was able to ditch the crutches he was using in mid-February, but the fact that he wasn't included on the Avalanche's postseason roster all but confirms he still hasn't fully recovered from the surgery he underwent in early December. The 30-year-old winger picked up four helpers through the first nine games of the regular season before sustaining his injury.

Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Making progress in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (lower body) isn't using crutches anymore but still has no timeline to return, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Wilson is making good progress in his rehab, but the Avalanche aren't sure when he'll be ready to return to the lineup. His next step will be getting back on the ice in some capacity, so we may have to wait until March to see him gear up again. Injuries are stacking up for Colorado, so the team could use his presence in the top nine, as he posted 27 points (12 goals, 15 assists) last year.

Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Still using crutches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson was spotted with crutches Tuesday but was able to walk on his own, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Although he's making progress, Wilson still appears to need a few more weeks of recovery before getting back on the ice. The 30-year-old will remain on IR until then, but he'll be valuable depth when he returns, as he produced 12 goals and 15 helpers over 65 games last season.

Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Out indefinitely after surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (lower body) will undergo surgery and is expected to be out long term, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Wilson hasn't played since Oct. 26, but he was off to a solid start with four points over the first nine games. Since the details of his injury are unclear, the 30-year-old should be considered week-to-week at this time, and he'll remain on IR.

Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (lower body) has surfaced on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Wilson will miss a seventh straight game Tuesday against Winnipeg and remains without a definite timetable for his return to the lineup. The veteran winger will need to return to practice before his return to action can be viewed as imminent, so he can be considered out indefinitely until that occurs.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (lower body) won't play Tuesday against Dallas.

Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Not in lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson will not play Saturday against Arizona because of a lower-body injury,'s Alan Robinson reports.

Originally tabbed as an undisclosed injury, Wilson's injury apparently is of the lower-body variety, and it will cause him to miss a second game. Jayson Megna will take his spot in Colorado's lineup. Wilson will now try to answer the bell Tuesday in Dallas.

Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Ruled out against Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (undisclosed) won't play Friday against the Stars and is considered questionable for Colorado's upcoming two-game road trip, AJ Haefele of DNVR reports.

Wilson is technically considered day-to-day with the undisclosed injury he suffered during Tuesday's practice, but he appears to be in real danger of missing multiple contests. Jayson Megna will continue to round out the Avalanche's depth down the middle until Wilson is cleared to return.

Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Injured during practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson suffered an undisclosed injury during Tuesday's practice session and won't be in the lineup against the Panthers on Wednesday, Ryan S. Clark of The Athletic reports.

Wilson is currently stuck in a nine-game goal drought, during which he notched four helpers, 12 shots and eight hits. The winger will have to wait at least one more game in order to end his drought due to his undisclosed injury. With Gabriel Landeskog (lower body) and Mikko Rantanen (lower body) on the shelf as well, the Avs will need to call-up a player from the minors. T.J. Tynan -- who has eight points in seven minor-league tilts -- figures to be the leading candidate for a promotion.

Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Breaks through on scoresheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Searching for first 2019-20 point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson has no points with a plus-1 rating and three shots on net in two games this season.

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.

Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Making preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Hampered by lower-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Contributes three points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson scored two goals -- including one on the power play -- and added an assist in Friday's 5-1 win over the Flames for Game 5.

It's a bit of an unexpected burst for the 29-year-old winger, who had only one assist over the previous four games. Avalanche fans won't be complaining, as Wilson was one of four Avs to accumulate three points in the contest, which secured the team's advancement to the second round.

Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Notches helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avalanche's Colin Wilson: Collects helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson dished a power-play assist and blocked two shots in Friday's 3-2 shootout win over the Coyotes.

The assist gives Wilson 25 points (11 goals, 14 helpers) in 61 games, improving on the 18 points he had last year. He's not the near lock for 30 points as he was over eight campaigns with the Predators, but the 29-year-old can still provide depth for fantasy owners. He's also a power-play contributor, as seven of his 25 points have come with the man advantage.
