As had been expected, based on previous statements, Colin Wilson has been assigned to the Milwaukee Admirals on what is expected to be a "reconditioning" assignment.
Wilson has been plagued by a groin injury that has not resolved completely since training camp. He started the season on injured reserve, came back to play ten games and then missed the last eight contests.
Once he gets in game shape, he is expected to return to Nashville and continue his rookie season at the NHL Level.
Here is the complete release from the Predators...
