The Nashville Predators are hoping Colin Wilson will be more well-rounded in 2016-17.
More specifically, Nashville wants Wilson to play in the regular season like he does in the playoffs. In 2015-16 he was limited to just 24 points in 64 regular season games, but during the 2016 postseason he had 13 points in 14 contests. Wilson is certainly aware of the contrast and attributes it to his focus on helping the Predators succeed in the playoffs. The goal then is to think like that throughout the campaign. "When it's just like such a short period, you have to go out there and win," Wilson said. "It's just different than an 82-game schedule. I think you kind of get lost, go into slumps, so I've got to embrace every game, embrace every moment. That mindset has been successful for me, so I'll be trying to do it next year."

Apr 6 - 1:58 AM

Colin Wilson had an assist in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over Vancouver.

It ended a six-game scoring drought for the 25-year-old winger when James Neal scored his 29th goal of the season. Wilson feels confident that he can finish the season on a high note. "I think when that playoff stretch is coming down, it's a higher-energy game and everybody is fighting for something," he said. "Your head starts to clear and you're like, 'I just have to go out there and help the team win and get to the playoffs.' It's an exciting time. Instead of looking at it as an 82-game schedule, you're looking game to game." He has recorded just five goals and 22 points in 57 games this season.
