Colin Wilson

Aaron Vickers

Wilson possesses a power forward type of skill set and hard working attitude. While not a very good skater he does have good balance and can get to where he is going with good agility. Plays physical along the boards and is not afraid to go in any areas on the ice despite the punishment he takes. Has a good shot and can handle the puck around the net. He is responsible defensively and can tie up opposing players well without taking penalties. He reads the play well coming back in his own end and has some decent playmaking ability in the offensive zone. Surprises with skilled plays ever so often but his game is best when kept simple, driving to the net and playing a solid two-way game. Wilson is a bit of a fitness freak as his results at the NHL Scouting Combine showed were he had the best testing results of all participating prospects. (May 2008)
