Wilson's production slipped in 2004-05, but he was still
Colgate's fifth-leading scorer.
Statistics: Despite missing eight games in the second
half of the season with a broken foot, Wilson still managed
to finish fifth on the team in scoring with 23 points. His
18 assists tied for the team lead and three of his five goals
came on the power play.
What He Does: Wilson doesn’t have the
flash or sizzle that gets other forwards noticed. He just
makes smart plays with the puck and excellent reads. His anticipation
makes him very valuable in a penalty-killing role.
The Bigger Picture: Wilson will need to provide
more than offense for the Raiders if they want to stay near
the top of the ECAC Hockey League. Colgate has lost eight
seniors that regularly played in the lineup last year including
leaders such as Darryl McKinnon, Adam Mitchell, and Joey Mormina.
Wilson will wear an “A” this year.
Colgate head coach Don Vaughan on Wilson:
"He brings a lot of offensive presence. He has great
instinct … It motivates the other guys. They know what
he brings to the lineup.”
